Good Eats and Red Flags

We have enjoyed some good meals here in the Gulf.

First is an old favorite...Cosmo's.

You go up on a deck with lots of pretty flowers to enter the restaurant.

Lots of neat art on the inside!

Fire Cracker Shrimp! We had  a few of them before I remembered to take a photo.

Thursday on the beach it was very windy and rainy. We went down for a while in the morning but being sandblasted is no fun so we came back up to the condo and sat on the balcony. For lunch we decided to check out a new to us spot, Sunliner Diner.

I dont know who that good looking man is in the blue tee shirt!

Marvin had chicken and waffles and I had a waffle...I am a purist. Food was good and all the waitresses were dressed in 1950s attire.

After lunch we just stayed in as this is what it looked like outside.

Red flags were up warning everyone to stay out of the water.  As you can see just a few hardy souls braved the weather. We were watching the local news and saw that Mobile had terrible storms and flooding.

But even inside, being at the beach is nice!

What a cute diner! I see that Marvin in the blue shirt. I agree that even a rainy day at the beach is a good day. It was a crazy evening in Mobile.

Hmm, that firecracker shrimp looked fabulous! Is it spicy? The diner looked super. Hope you picked up a conversation with the handsome man in the blue T! Have a wonderful Friday, Arlene!

That diner is a beauty and I bet it was fun too. Hope you picked up that good looking guy and had lunch with him! :)

The last shot looks scary, as if a storm is brewing. Bless you, xoxo, Susie

I love weather!! Call me crazy! I'm so glad you are enjoying yourself even when you stay in! One of the nicest things about vacations is the cool places to eat!

Love the beach photo, the clouds, the waves. Can't get enough of the beach.
