Lovely Evening

We had a lovely evening last night in Jacksonville, Florida.  Our daughter who lives in Maryland now has a job that will be sending her to Jacksonville every couple of months.  Well Jacksonville is  only about 120 miles from here and that's a lot better than the 600+ miles to her place in Maryland, so yesterday afternoon we drove on down and met her at her hotel, the Hyatt--how nice, and took her out to dinner.
We ate at a small Italian cafe near where she was staying and spent a couple of hours eating, talking and just enjoying being together.
The food was good, the capuchinos and cake were more than tasty and it was so good to be together.


After dinner we walked along the St. John River that runs through Jacksonville and watched the dolphins playing, we saw  more than we had ever seen in the wild before, nearly a dozen, including a group of 3 playing together.  They didn't show up very well in the pictures but you can just see a dorsal fin in the distance.

All too soon it was time to say good-by and head home, but all in all a lovely evening.

  1. Our daughter is 600 miles away. We are hoping in the next year or so she may move nearer, maybe 400 miles to live in the north of England. 120 miles must be wonderful - almost on your doorstep!

The kitchen smells heavenly.  I made vegetable beef soup, think it's the first time I've done that.  It's for lunch tomorrow and...
