Three Things Thursday: (Three Days Late) Sunday April 12, 2015

I have so many “happies” to contribute to Nerd in the Brain’s Three Things Thursday this week that it took me three extra days to post it all!

(Yeah, nice try.)

We were in Augusta last weekend, visiting my Mom-in-Law, Linda.

Friday night, we took a sunset cruise on the Augusta canals, in a Petersburg boat, which is a reproduction of the pole-barges used to ferry cotton down the Savannah river to the Augusta mills in the late 1800s.  The hour and a half boat tour offered wonderful live music with the Henrys (the trio of violin, stand-up bass and guitar we enjoyed hearing so much a few weeks ago at 5 o’clock Bistro) and we brought a bottle of wine and a picnic of cheese and charcuterie to enjoy along the way.

Saturday night, we took Linda to a wonderful restaurant in old downtown Augusta, called Frog Hollow Tavern.

Duck rillettes!

The food and service were truly amazing.  I’m in the restaurant business, so it’s always so nice when someone just does it all right.  Details make the experience as much as the cuisine.

Augusta’s a little further South than Atlanta, so Spring was more firmly entrenched.  It was such a lovely weekend, with blue skies, warm sun and a riot of colorful flowers.

My husband and I have made a tradition of dressing up for Easter every year. He dons his seer-sucker suit, I coordinate an ensemble and hat (Easter bonnet!), and of course we always get the rest of the family to doll up, too.  It’s so much fun – I always love our annual photos.

Wishing you all a wonderful week!

  1. Have to say…your theme picture is chock full of happiness. I love the sun scene.

    Nice pix of your Easter bonnet and Sunday best. I can almost taste the lemonade served fresh under a sprawling Magnolia tree.

    I was born in South Florida and live in North Florida. It’s about as “south” as you can get. 🙂
