Day on the Islands

I had one of the best weekends I've had in a long time. Todd and Kathy Paridon invited me and Mom up to Kathy's mom's place up on South Bass Island. She's got a bunch of bedrooms, and rents some to people staying on the island.

We met up at the Paridon's house friday night after work. We caught the ferry over and met Kathy's mom, Nettie, who drove us to her place. We got settled and turned in for the night

Saturday we got up, had some breakfast, then hit the road for our tour of the island with Todd and Kathy. We walked around downtown, got some lunch, did some shopping. After the tour, we went back to the house to get ready for dinner. Todd grilled up some peppers onions and potatos, then made the best steak I've EVER TASTED! He used this marinade that was beyond compare, it had a hint of sweetness to it. God. I dreamt about that steak that night.

Kathy's sister and brother-in-law, who run a full bed and breakfast, stopped over for dinner and their dog, Shep, came over with them. Shep was the coolest, calmest, best behaved dog I'd met in a long time. After dinner, Todd, Kathy and I went for a cruise downtown to check out the nightlife. Not much was happening downtown, so we checked out the point, where we saw a couple of the Perseid meteors.

All in all it was an amazing relaxing weekend. Full pictures can be seen here
