Our Last Night with Bonnie and Family
We sadly left South Padre Island, after saying our good-byes to Bonnie, Buck and Eddie last night after dinner at Pier 19.....where else but on the pier......at our KOA.
Dinner was great--this has been our favorite seafood place on the island.
It was really hard to leave my sister and her family because it has been several years since we have gotten together. And it's the first time we have met and gotten to know Buck, Bonnie's new husband. We feel like old friends now. So Bonnie and Buck, now come and see us, you hear? (She has already promised to visit this fall.)
Wednesday night Buck and Bonnie made dinner for us, ******STARRING****** Buck's special seasoned, marinated and grilled butterfly shrimp.
The picture shows the shrimp before grilling. It was so succulent! Bonnie made a cobbler that was she has been making for years. It was decadent and delicious.
So thank you, Buck and Bonnie, for all your generous hospitality, great cooking, and the fun we had hanging out with you!
And goodbye to the island, until next time.
