Friday was a gorgeous day, again. Don and I had breakfast at Bayside, which is a buffet. The food was delicious!
The beach was calling to us, so we grabbed some towels and found a spot. They say there are 2 miles of beach and every inch is beautiful. There are umbrellas and trees, sunny places and shade. We chose shade and parked ourselves. The ocean is very calm with a reef not too far out, so swimming is delightful. The ocean water is actually warmer than the pool! After lounging by the water for the morning, we took a glass bottom boat ride out for a short cruise. The reef is close, and we were able to see many fish and many types of coral on the hour long ride.
Next we needed to dress for dinner. This was the rehearsal dinner (no actual rehearsal, though). It was a private party in a secluded spot just for us. There were 3 round tables beautifully decorated, white glove waiter service, open bar and a wonderful meal. First there was peppered shrimp, followed by a small salad, then filet of beef with blue cheese, mashed potatoes, and finally, Magical Moment Chocolate Mousse for dessert! Whew, it was a good thing we didn't eat too much during the day. There were a few toasts by members of the wedding party and everyone had a wonderful time. Afterwards it was off to the Martini Bar again.
Again the weather was great, high 80s with a breeze.
