This past weekend, we headed down to the beach for a weekend away. Dont get me wrong, I love the city, but there is something incredibly relaxing about being near water.
We got down around 9pm Friday night and met my parents at BJs on the Water to listen to a local band, Mood Swingers w/ Lauren Glick, and have a couple drinks. Lauren Glick had an incredible voice.
Saturday morning, we woke up and got ready for a run. Kevin and I ran an out and back for a total of a 5.4 miles. My legs were tired from the legs & back P90x workout Friday, so that was plenty for me.
We hit the grocery store and then put together a hearty breakfast.
Breakfast tacos! Corn tortillas, eggs, sautéed peppers, onions & spinach, cheddar cheese & hot sauce. Turkey bacon on the side.
After the first nap of the day, we ventured out for some shopping and eventually stopped for a late lunch.
We sat outside on the picnic tables and soaked up the sun. It felt great. Kevin and I started with an order of Conch Fritters.
I am not really sure if I tasted conch or not? I guess it could be because I don't know what conch should taste like. But fried dough, savory or sweet, always tastes good to me. ;)
I ordered the blackened tuna wrap and really enjoyed it. A soft, fresh tortilla wrap was filled with blackened tuna, cool veggies, and a spicy blue cheese sauce on the side.
After we rested and napped for the second time of the day, we decided to take a walk up to the beach. Oscar had a blast rolling around in the cold sand.
The wind had picked up and my feet were freezing, so we didn't stay out very long.
We headed back to the bayside to watch the sunset.
