It's raining and too windy to go out and enjoy the beach, so some of us choose to go to the Aquarium for a little entertainment. It's an enjoyable diversion. We decide it's time for a late lunch and count up "the clan". Unfortunately we find that not many restaurants are able to handle a group of 17. But, Mahi Mahi will take us at 2:15pm. Oh well, we'll just have to have a beverage or two at the bar. :-)
In the evening my parents, William and I host a dinner for the out-of-town guests (approximately
50 people) at Beach Bully BBQ. There's wonderful conversation and good food. Several people who know of each other through Mary's stories meet for the first time.
