Another large mass of green algae this morning. 🙁
By lunch time D was able to take the rest of the day off so we tried to enjoy our last day out in the sun. That didn’t last too long as we where chased in by some angry looking dark clouds, thunder and lightening.
We headed back to sit on the patio since it didn’t really rain just a couple of drops.
After enjoying the rest of the afternoon we headed in for a quick shower then walked down to Pompano Joe’s for one last meal out on the town.
I started out with an Emerald Coast Margarita, which was ok, but not worth $6.50. This wouldn’t be such a complaint if we had our friendly waitress Kim we had the first night. Tonight’s chick could care less we where there. She ignored us then got an attitude having to take our order.
We used our free appetizer for Crab Claws (sautéed in garlic oil). They where small, yet really good and as a bonus we didn’t have to crack any shells!
As an entree I ordered the Amberjack sandwich. The fish was cooked well, but everything had no flavor. Even the coleslaw. I soaked up the garlic juice leftover from the crab claws and it tasted much better.
D ordered the Island Cheeseburger (Certified Angus Beef Grilled & served on a toasted bun with cheddar,lettuce, tomato & onion). One of the better burgers we had. (The folks at Cheeseburger in Paradise need to taste these to see what a real burger is supposed to taste like!)
So it comes time to pay the bill and I hand the coupon and credit card to our super annoyed waitress she sets down the paper and rings up the bill. When she comes back I tell her “I hope you took off the appetizer since the coupon is for a free one”. Her response was an eye roll and a rude “I’m sorry, but we normally don’t serve food at the bar”. Uh well now, not my fault we sat down and even made sure it was ok seeing as how there where other people eating at the bar and we ate there on our first night. Another 5 minutes so comes back with it corrected and throws it down. My response…..$2 tip on a $30 something tab. If I wasn’t so annoyed and ready to leave I would have left her a comment on the receipt!
After dinner we walked back to the condo and relaxed by taking M on a long walk. Poor baby has been stuck in the condo so she was super excited to play in the ocean and try biting the surf. We where even able to get her to sit still long enough to get some new family photos, so it was a good day.
