The days have been quite the same here at the beach–wake up, breakfast, beach, lunch on beach, dinner and hitting a few bars–so I really had nothing to say yesterday.
Saturday night we visited Lucy the Elephant. Lucy is a giant elephant in Margate that used to be a hotel and now is a major tourist attraction down here.
Yesterday we got pizza delivered to the beach.
(It’s really crowded.)
For dinner, we went to an Italian seafood place on the water called Baia. I started with a limoncello drink with limoncello and vodka. It was both sweet and strong, which is a sort of weird combination, if you ask me. I couldn’t drink more than one of these.
So for dinner, I switched to wine.
I usually can’t resist gnocchi or scallops on a menu, so when I saw both in one dish, I had to get it.
After dinner, we all headed out to the deck of the restaurant to hang out.
Not really the greatest pic, but I loved the little sparkling lights.
I would like my hair to do that without ocean water. (Or to just move to the ocean. Either would be great.)
Today’s beach lunch delivery was from a placed called Matteo’s, and I got a lobster roll. I felt kind of bad for the lobster and the lobster family he left eating it on the beach.
Since I’ve been here, I haven’t had many vegetables and I haven’t eaten very healthily, but my stomach seems to have calmed down. I don’t understand, but I’m going with it. Back to the beach!
