The weather was absolutely amazing yesterday. I was able to go for my long walk on the beach and appreciate some of my surroundings.
I started with lunch at Fish Bites. Not quite at the beach, but on the way. I have eaten there several time before, but mostly appetizers and steamed clams. The Lobster Bisque is really good, so I ordered that while continuing to look at the menu. There were so many tempting choices. I was torn between the Clam Strip Roll and the Lobster Salad Plate. The Lobster Salad Plate seemed more colorful, so I went with that one. My Lobster Bisque arrived and was just as good as I remembered. It was only a cup, since I ordered a whole meal to go with it. It was suggested that I try the Citrus Vinaigrette for the Lobster Salad Plate. What a good suggestion. I had it on the side instead, just in case. I did not finish the whole salad because they have a really nice dessert selection. You can see it in the case as you walk by if you are sitting in the back at the bar. Unfortunately the lighting was not letting me take pictures that would do it justice. The solution, order a piece of Strawberry Angel Cake. It was so light. I felt bad about abandoning my salad and eating the whole dessert. Not!!!! One thing I did learn was that Thursday is half price bottles of wine night. I may have gone later if I knew that beforehand. That is okay, there is always next time.
It was so gorgeous out. A long walk was in order after eating all that delicious food. I continued heading down toward the beach. When I got there, I saw the Crush and Grind about a block away. I thought I could use a quick something before my walk. If you have not been there, they have coffee, beer, wine and a few other beverages. I always enjoy going, so relaxing there. I tried an Irish Cream that is normally used to spike coffee, but not being a coffee drinker myself, I tried it without the coffee. It was so creamy. I never had that brand before, but I have to say, next time you are in tell them Wilmington Fun said you needed to spike your coffee with it. Spiking your coffee with it is only $3.00. Now off to the beach, where I encountered a young lady doing somewhat of a baton act, but with a sword. It was quite interesting and she let me do a live feed on Facebook. If you get a chance, please watch and share. She is incredible.
Well that was my day at the beach. I will be back there tonight at Tastebuds Popcorn from 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm selling Wilmington Fun t-shirts. Do not forget to stop and buy a t-shirt, so you can get your FREE thank you popcorn for the purchase. Special Events will start in June. Look for the postings to start in mid-May. I am hoping to meet a lot of new people. It will be a FUN event. We might even give away some koozies while we are there. Hope to see you there.
