Happy Valentine's Day! We had a lovely day .....roses on the table from the Farmer's Market and a lot of cards exchanged between the two of us. Al gave me such lovely cards with a lot of glitter, bling, ribbon and lovely sentiments. I made a light lunch with the balance of the mussels and served with a radish salad. Spent a lazy afternoon on the beach....was a bit cool but very sunny.
We had a special dinner tonight at home. We have found the restaurants on the island are so busy on Valentine's that we prefer a more relaxed evening together. We enjoyed caviar with drinks on the porch. We then prepared lamb chops served with mint sauce, rice pilaf, and Caesar salad and enjoyed dinner with Korbel Champagne.
We having been visiting Captiva Island for a number of years and have found it to be a most fun and relaxing place. We started coming one week in February and one week in September many years ago and have added more weeks since we retired. We now come for 6 weeks at a time.
