On Sunday, we attended a private gathering at The Tide's pool with Henrietta. It was the end of a wild weekend, a wild season, and--I hope--a wild life. It is time to behave and relax.
Yesterday, we gave a good-bye late lucheon for Darren and Alan, with the jasmine plants blooming in full. That is Leopoldo on the left, followed by Henrietta, Darren, Alan, Terry, and (new pool boy monster) Fredo. The menu consisted of Terry's signature salad, my coconut rice, and Henrietta's sweet and sour meatballs, pork loin in mole' sauce, and giant lobster tails in a marinara, followed by her homemade cookies and a supremely decadent chocolate cake. Oh, yes; there was a lot of vodka and rum. Season is ending, and we might as well end it on a high note.
