SC: Four!

Day Fooooouuuuurr!!!

First things first, time to get preppy:

All eight of us set out in the early afternoon to play a best ball, boys against girls, at Rose Hill Golf Club just a little ways off of the island.

The girls played hard and celebrated many birdies and one grand eagle!

However, I can’t deny that that boys beat us by one stroke.

We’ll get you next time…

SC: The Swing of Things

Day Three

After a good night sleep, we all woke up and Dad and Jane made us all bacon, eggs and english muffins.  Yum yum yum.

We then broke into two groups: the golfers and the bikers.

The Golfers

We biked for over two hours, all through Palmetto Dunes and down the beach.

Johnny got to see his first ocean and he even tasted the salt water!

We got to see all the massive mansions throughout the community, and I still cannot get over all the different palm trees. It’s almost like the houses are going to be overgrown with vegetation if they were even left vacant for a day.  The bike trails are really nice too, lots of little hills and turns and the path is very well taken care of and wide, it makes for an easy ride. (ha that’s a rhyme!).

The golfers played at Golden Bear.  The course was nice.  They saw not one, but two alligators.  Dad says he kicked butt, but obviously not enough, because Olivia won.  However, Jarrett held his own coming in a close third, while Jane was the caboose.  There are lots more games to be played though, so lots of time for comebacks.

Afterwards, we all gathered and played Mexican Train until we headed out for supper.  We dined at Pazzo, and authentic Italian restaurant.  It had dim lights and a very warm atmosphere.  Our waitress was really nice and the food was even nicer. The bread that came out on the table was one of the highlights, moist and buttery, and the oil to dip was flavoured with lots of garlic and herbs a nice change from balsamic vinegar.   Dad selected two well bodied bottles of red wine to go with our meals. I ordered an antipasti sampler, which included bruchetta, calamari and some other fried cheese things that I forget the name of but were absolutely delicious. I also munched on mussels and clams from Dad’s plate.   For the main event, I had Eggplant Parmesan that was served on top of spaghetti and covered in ooey-gooey-cheesy-goodness.  All around the table, the food was well received.  Pazzo is a gem of a restaurant.

After dinner we came back to Palm Moon and, as Johnny would say (or maybe LMFAO, depending who you ask), we “party rocked.
