anniversary weekend

this is what greeted us upon our arrival at the tides inn.  ice cold lemonade and a plate of cookies!  i took full advantage of this while john david checked us in.  when no one was looking i went back for a second cookie ~ shhhh!

after settling in, we explored on the grounds on bikes, then relaxed in rocking chairs over looking the water.  what is it about a rocking chair and water that is refreshing?

this was the view from the rocking chair and below is the view from our room.  loved the plantation blinds!  it was cloudy and rainy, but that was just fine.  they usually have s'mores on the patio at 8:00 each evening.  due to the weather, we had to settle for milk and cookies in the view room which was a large room with a grand piano in the center, and plenty of seating for reading and chatting. 
golf while it was misting... not heading to the lpga anytime soon!  but we did have fun. 
sunday night we ate at this place ~ merroir ~ obviously a hole in the wall. but so delicious! the crab cakes were the best we have ever eaten! we went back by on our way home to snap a picture and the owner and another guy were out on a crab/oyster shanty working on that evening's meal.  talk about fresh seafood!  they have also been featured on the food network several times.  seriously. good. eats!
the second night we dined at the tides inn.  it was pricey but delicious.  i had shrimp and grits which was amazing.  john david had salmon.  they had gluten free biscuits too!  (jd is gluten free, most people do not know that though.)  happy anniversary to us!  it's been a wonderful 14 years so far and here's to many more!
