Dinner at Dock 633

This past week has brought with it some of the coldest weather we've seen in a long time.   Early in the week we had some 30 and 40 degree mornings.  Too cold to be outside for long - definitely too cold to be on the water fishing.  So on Tuesday I took a ride down to Lake Josephine to visit with Tonyia.  She and I and Carla went to the club house and played Mexican Train.  

Bob and Carla are parked next to Nick and Tonyia at the park and are spending their first winter in Florida, both of them having recently retired.   Carla joined Tonyia and I Thursday night for Bingo at the Elks Club here in Lake Placid.

Tonight Rich got to meet both of them for the first time, as we joined them along with Nick and Tonyia at Dock 633 for dinner.  It was a beautiful night so we sat outside.  Picture below of the group.............(not great- it was pretty dark out there!)  Rich and I have been here probably a half dozen times since we moved to Lake Placid. Nice place to eat - and the food is always good.  We started the evening with cocktails, a Bloomin Onion, Fried Pickles and Gator Bites.   Rich and Tonyia opted for the Speghetti, Nick and Bob went for the Double Burger ( absolutely HUGE), Carla did the lemon pepper wings and Lobster Bisque soup, and I had a large salad with grilled chicken.  Bob managed to eat the WHOLE burger - but had to take the Key Lime Pie home in a doggie box!    Very nice couple.  We hope to spend more time with them this winter before they head back to Illinois.

Taking a "mini" vacation soon.  Just book the hotel room in Ft. Lauderdale, and a 1/2 day deep sea fishing charter for next weekend.  We hope to take in at least one evening of Jai-Alai at the fronton in Dania before we head back.  Should be fun.  Can't wait!
