Al walked around 8:30. Had brunch around 11 of pasta omelet with shrimp and sliced tomatoes. Went out to beach around 1 til 3. Nice day in 70's and sunny. Very quiet with few birds....willets, ruddy turnstones, sanderlings, gulls. Saw Great Blue for the first time. Sailboat and motorboats in the gulf. Enjoyed afternoon at beach.
Had dinner with Mike at Traders after watching sunset from his decks. Al and Mike had Caesar salads. Mike had New York Strip with Cabernet demi glace served with roasted fingerling potatoes. Al had Frenched veal chop topped with portobello mushroom and served with garlic mashed potatoes and spaghetti squash. I had panko crusted salmon on baby greens with lemon caper dill vinaigrette served with avocado salsa. Had after dinner drinks at Mike's.
