Not much poker on vacation

Sorry I am so slack with the poker material. I have been on a much needed vacation to Florida. 16 wonderful days from the Atlantic coast at Amelia Island to Mexico beech on the gulf. Some business, mostly pleasure with my family. A great place for a vacation.

I shall share a few pictures with you

Some of Sheppard's Flock

Just a Lonely Cloud at Amelia Island Plantation

To the secluded Gulf coast at Mexico Beach.

The wolverine joined us there with his girlfriend for great food, some fishing, relaxing in the sun, flying the kite, more fishing, boating and best of all was watching the sunset every night.

My little Zoe

In one day we saw a water spout and a rainbow.

volleyball, totem polls and sunsets

I didn't get a chance to play poker for 16 days. Does this mean I need to get a laptop or was this a blessing? We had a great time, I caught 5 sharks, went scalloping and crabbing. I made some great shrimp and grits, pan seared grouper and mushrooms stuffed with crab but my wife only found one scallop after hours of looking. We went out to eat many times but who can afford to eat out every night.

on the Liquor side:
Each morning after coffee it was time for a Bloody Mary, I have a great recipe for Bloody Mary
1 shot Vodka
2 shots Clamato juice
2 olives
a splash of olive juice
hot sauce (chalula)
L& P ( that's whatsthisheresauce for those who don't know)
a touch of garlic salt
a touch of Lowry's all purpose seasoning
fresh black pepper
a slice of lime

A meal in itself

The Bloody Mary was created in 1921 by Pete Petiot, bartender a Harrys New York bar in Paris. The Bloody Mary came to the US in 1933 when Petiot joined the St. Regis Hotel as head barman of its King Cole Bar. Its said that the name "Bloody Mary" alluded to Mary Tudor, Queen of England and Ireland, for her bloody prosecution of Protestants.

Until another day
