24 Years

The DH and I went out last night for our 24th wedding anniversary. We took the water taxi across the Potomac to the Gaylord Hotel.

We did this last year and it was such fun, we decided to go again this year. Last year we did the Sunday brunch at the Italian Market. They were booked up so the DH made reservations at one of the other restaurants in the hotel. We went to Moonbay. When he made the reservations on-line he checked the anniversary box. Well, boy howdy, did that get us great service! We ordered wine, the waiter's recommendation, and when he brought it he had two small glass and said it was a cocktail sample the bartender was trying. It was delicious. It had vodka, peach schnapps, orange juice, and mango. The came the food. Oh my! I had calamari for an appetizer, DH had shrimp cocktail (and half of my calamari), then jumbo lump crab cake for my entree and he had the surf and turf, which was a 6 oz. steak and 1 and 1/2 lbs. of Maine lobster. Everything was wonderful. Then for desert he had key lime tart and I had peach cobbler. Our waiter also brought two champagne flutes with out dessert for our anniversary. How special is that? All in all a wonderful evening.View of the Gaylord and Harbor from the river
