Ken made some barbecue chicken last night, and it turned out really yummy! I think we all had plenty to eat, then sat out on the balcony for a few minutes to catch a little night air.
Lee had brought some board games down with him, so we played one called Wordsters, in which you have to form as many words as possible in a minute, that contain three letters in sequence (not necessarily in a row). I thought it was a lot of fun, but Ken and Lee didn't seem to like it as much. <grin>
Before lunch, we went to our usual spot at a small county park, where we can see manatees in the inlet. We saw quite a few of them this time, but the water was very murky, so we couldn't see their entire bodies. We did have fun watching a pelican chasing after a leaping fish, only to be outrun and outgunned by a dolphin, who leaped out of the water to score the fish. Very cool!
For lunch, we went to JB's Fish Camp, where I satisfied my raw oyster jones! Ken and I split a dozen, and they were melt-in-your-mouth delicious! I had a fried platter with oysters, fish, shrimp, clams, scallops, and a mini-crabcake. I couldn't even begin to eat it all--I rarely eat fried food like that, but I splurged today. I splurged a little more with a piece of Key Lime pie--my favorite!--and I'm feeling a little miserable at the moment. When we got back, Lee took off not too long after that, and while Ken went out for a run along the beach, I laid down for a little while. I didn't really sleep, but a little doze helped to settle my tummy a bit. <gurgle>
When Ken gets back, we'll have our last dip in the ocean this year. Hard to believe how fast the week went by.
Hey, about those jelly-like blobs that Lee thought might be sand dollars? Our first thought was jellyfish as well, but they're a sort of rigid gel, not gooey like I thought jellyfish would be. Also, no tentacles are apparent. It's just a semisolid disc of gel. Are those REALLY jellyfish? I poked at one with my toe and nothing happened. What the heck are they??
