Best Ride So Far for me

I was only able to ride 2 days this week because I worked some OT. But today was my best ride so far since we bought our bikes. The temperature was so nice. I know I will enjoy riding more in the fall and winter. We rode 25.83 miles in 2 hours and 8 minutes. North Alabama is starting to see some of the colors of Autumn.

First Night's Dinner in Orlando

Bill introduced us to Hemingway's for Dinner on the day Carrie and I arrived. It was very beautiful and the food was excellent. Carrie and I had the crabcakes and Bill had something (maybe Blackened Mahi Mahi?) with prawns. The sun was setting as we headed for dinner. Bill had made reservations for 7:30. Perfect timing! Thanks again Bill!

Last Night in Orlando

On our last night in Orlando, Carrie talked me into venturing across town to Roy's. They specialize in Hawaiian Fusion Cuisine I was very hesitant about going, but I am so glad we did. Thanks Carrie!
Carrie's entree is shown above: Spinach & Gorgonzola Crusted Salmon with Roasted Garlic Red Wine Sauce. I chose the Mongolian Grilled Top Sirloin. Natural Soy Mustard Butter Sauce & Wasabi Mashed Potatoes ~ It was delicious! The only night in Orlando that I did not eat seafood.
