43rd Wedding Anniversary

December 1, 1973...  I remember it well.  It was the day my Sweetie and I were married.

And we just celebrated that day for the 43rd time.

I was feeling poorly and we had to postpone until today our little celebration in style.  But we did go for a special lunch yesterday at a popular new restaurant called Cape Code Cafe.  Our neighbors joined us.

Reviews all gave it high marks and advised people to be prepared to stand in a long line for the evening meal. So we though it best to get there when they opened at 11:00. It pretty much filled up by the time we left.

We may have been a bit over hyped by the reviews but we didn't like it.  We even ordered their signature dish, a lobster roll, which we didn't like at all.  We also ordered cups of lobster bisque and New England Clam Chowder.  The bisque was weak in flavor and the lobster bits in it were tough and stringy.  The Clam Chowder was only pretty good.  We make better at home.

We even ordered the Sampler Platter that  included some crab cakes, fried clams and French Fries. Really bad.  We can't wait to NOT go back.

Even so, it was a nice outing with our neighbors.  It also let us know that our tastes are definitely not for New England style seafood.

I slept most of the rest of the day.

But today I felt better and we both went for pedicures.  And I have to say, an occasional pedicure is worth it, even for the manliest of men and the most frugal of women.

Then we had a delicious lunch at a favorite Chinese restaurant just across the street from the spa.

No sooner than we arrived back home I was ready for a full nap.  Apparently, I needed it.

After 43 years, celebrating it doesn't actaully have to be on the same day.  Today was much nicer.

Happy Anniversary Love of my Life
