The 'Fuzz Fest' on Saturday was fabulous. We stayed nearly 4 hours, spent a lot of loot, petted and cooed over many critters (rabbits, alpaca [want!!], llamas, a dozen different sheep and goat breeds), had elephant ears and fresh squeezed lemonade in the shade listening to live folk music. Total win. Explored Allegan and relaxed in a phenomenal huge jacuzzi tub.
Yesterday Brian took me to Saugatuck for lunch at my favorite deli where a very talented young man was playing acoustic guitar. Then we shopped and sat by the water watching birds and boaters. We headed back for a bit of a nap, then he took me to one of my most beloved restaurants Everyday People Cafe
for dinner and listening to live blues. I had several dry Belvedere martinis with blue cheese stuffed olives. We decided to try 3 different appetizers, and then had dessert (I had blueberry bread pudding, and he had creme brulee Napolean in a raspberry reduction). It was so fun sitting outside on such a gorgeous night, having extraordinary food, and listening to good blues.
We left this morning, reluctantly. I was really enjoying the tub and king size bed. But we're home and I'm surrounded by pretty fiber and peace and quiet. Brian gave me something for my birthday I haven't really had in a while...lots of good sleep! The boy has worn me out but good *grins*
One more day left, and I'm pretty sure I'll be at the firing range for my birthday. Yes, my idea!
