Would you like Fries to go with that history lesson?

Is it just me or are you also thinking aliens fly by our planet and lock their doors?

If I could get a flight to a planet that didn’t include hate, I’d pack up my people and be the first in line. Well, I’d be in line after those people who need a little more time and veterans. But then, me and my people.

Luckily, we had a nice reprieve from the crappiness of the world on Fathers day. The Coach only had one request: time on the boat together. Who are we to deny him his one request?

The weather was nice; hot but mostly overcast so we didn’t die from the heat. The water was as FLAT as a pancake for most of the day. Or, if you’re one of THOSE people, it was as FLAT as the earth. Lolo and I had an in-depth conversation regarding those, um, what do you call them? Special people?

It was a great time together and we were visited by many, many dolphins and I just know they were all asking for me to take them home, keep them tucked in our pool and for me to be their Mama until the end of time. Or until we go to the other planet, whichever comes first.

We visited the interesting Cape Romano Dome houses again. One day, they will NOT be visible any longer as they are slowly sinking into the Gulf of Mexico. When we saw them in 2016 (the linked post) there were still six houses standing and now there are only four.

You can read the link provided about these homes, but the gist of it is someone built this unusual looking home back in the early 80’s on this tip of the island. They were a cluster of domes that were each a different room that created a funky home. Over time, the planet has gone to shit the island is eroding and the domes are in the Gulf.

Circa 2016-six domes were standing
Current sitch-four domes are still standing. Pic is a different view/angle from 2016 pic because I can’t keep my shit straight.

After our boating, dolphin cruise, history lesson we had a nice lunch at the marina. There was much talk/debate about which French fries are the best.

The Coach and I can’t talk enough about the extra CRUNCHY STEAK FRIES. That pic up there is only a quarter of my steak fry as I couldn’t think of stopping to take a pic before I started eating it. The girls both wanted TRUFFLE FRIES even thought we tried to influence them about how good the STEAK FRIES are.

Who knew, that they have a mind of their own? Well, I’m now on the fence as both were freaking delicious and are now living on my backside.

Which would you choose if someone had a shank to your back and threatened to push you off the flat earth?

  1. The dome homes look like they were built by aliens who decided to get the heck out of dodge. So funky looking. Envious of your boat time. Sounds so fun. Fries, hmm. I rarely eat those because restaurants usually fry them in the same fryers as breaded stuff like nuggets, but I am partial to steak fries. I like mine a bit soggy though, not necessarily crunchy. Weird?

    So you spent Father’s Day in a freakin’ Disney Movie? What the heck, man – boat, beautiful daughters, DOLPHINS. I like steak fries. I usually don’t order truffle fries unless I know the place does them well, because good truffle fries are amazing but I’ve had some weird icky ones also. Generally I am a fan of all manner of fried potato. My son took my husband golfing on Father’s Day for the first time ever – one gift Goddamned Covid gave us, I guess.
