A UNIQUE MOTHER'S DAY
It can be a challenge to find a restaurant on a special day that is good, not busy or noisy. Leave it to Steve and Carol to find a place that is everything you want in fine dining.
Whenever they take me on a mystery ride it turns out to be an unusual place that I would never have the opportunity to experience.
They have surprised me in the past with a visit to Brutole, which never disappoints. Even though it was Mother's Day the restaurant was pleasantly occupied, no hustle bustle, with a relaxed atmosphere.
We shared an appetizer, "Beets."
When it was served to us it looked like a luscious dessert! Even the people at the next table wanted to know what "it" was. What a fun way to get your vegies!!
I ordered the potato chip encrusted haddock with asparagus risotto - out of this world.
AFTER DINNER - A VISIT TO BROOKSBY VILLAGE

While in Florida this winter I recognized that it is getting harder and harder to keep going back and forth and as much as I enjoy it when I'm there, it's time to "stay put" up North.
I recently saw a unit at Brooksby Village that might be suitable.
Mother's Day was a good time for Steve and Carol to take a look. They both agreed that this is something to consider.
Even though the real estate market is not what I would like, will put my condo up at a price for 30 days and see what happens.
Now you know why I said, "A Unique Mother's Day."
