Monday's Beach Brunch...and "What is that?"
This morning we started by taking our long walk on the beach first...before breakfast and before it got too hot. Last night we had a torrential thunderstorm in the middle of the night...but awoke to another beautiful clear sunny morning. Youngest son is headed back home this afternoon...it was great having him here for a few days. Maybe next time my other son and daughter will be able to join us too. When we got back from our walk this morning, I made scrambled eggs with fresh sauteed baby spinach, diced tomatoes and Monterey Jack pepper cheese along with an Easy Cheddar Black Pepper Biscuit. That and a cup of toasted hazelnut coffee made for a perfect late "brunch". We've already staked out our spot on the beach and will be headed back down shortly. Last night we went out to eat at a small little restaurant nearby...I had char-grilled grouper and haricot verts drizzled with olive oil and grilled lemon. I snapped a couple photos of our brunch as well as a really unusual and beautiful palm tree that we walk past on our way to the beach. I've never seen anything like it before. In the center of this beautiful short palm tree is what appears to be a tightly woven basket full of red "eggs"...I carefully pried it open to take a closer look inside while trying to take a picture with my phone. If anyone knows what kind of palm tree it is, I'd like to know! I've been googling and can't seem to find anything quite like it. Enjoy!
