More Birthday Fun...

This picture was supposed to go below the verbiage in some sort of order, but what the hey, "It's my birthday"...and, yes, I know, that is a sunset...no grass growing on me...

  Well, today began just right, with a great sunrise glancing off the waves, the weather was perfect for drinking coffee on the deck in our bathrobes, someone was baking some sort of pastries that we could identify, and someone was burning some brush that made it smell a little like camp, when the wind shifted a little...

It must have been subliminal, for not long after, I asked Rox if she thought it might be a good idea to go into the Casa Blanca for breakfast, so I could have the "heart attack special", as a substitute for a birthday cake.  She heartily agreed that we should go after we spent some time walking on the beach.  In case, some of you have forgotten what that is, visualize a huge pancake, folded in a roll, containing about three bananas, and slathered with hot Chocolate topping...gooooooood!!!!

 Here's a shot or two from our table...

 

 We returned to the house sometime after noon, planning to cool it a bit, and just enjoy the afternoon, when Agripina arrived with a huge pan of lasagna, saying that it was for my birthday.  Since we had planned on Chateaubriand, we sort of thought that maybe we could use the lasagna as a side dish, and not use potatoes...but when we sampled the lasagna, we were astonished about how good it tasted and how light it was.  For one thing, it was made with very light crepes instead of lasagna noodles, made out of tons of chicken, seasoned lightly, and then filled and covered with very delicate cheeses...We've made lasagna for many years, and I have to say this was better than ours.  So...as the afternoon wore on, and we were getting to be more  and more like lizards, we decided that maybe we would just have the lasagna with salad and bread--and let the fillet Mignon wait until tomorrow...and we did...take a look...

 

 

Rox took two pics of me at the table...probably one of them will be pulled...

This sunset was just fine for a birthday dinner, and the topper was the Green Flash that we both saw...

 

 I had a couple of folks say that they didn't realize that we were quite so close to the water...well, during high tide and large waves, the water slides right under our gate...just about as close as we would want to be...

 

So...all in all, it was a pretty darn good day...and, to all of you who sent birthday emails, I say Thanks Mucho for thinking of me, and especially for being such good friends and loyal blog readers...
