We had a wonderful sunset dinner last night with a beachfront table. The whales were out again playing, breaching and making huge splashes as the sun went down in an explosion of pinks and coral. I ruined my potential weigh in (thank goodness there are no scales in Paradise) with a scrumptious ice cream sandwich dessert which I graciously shared with my husband. ...fudgy chocolate brownie sprinkled with my favorite macadamia nuts all sandwiching creamy vanilla bean ice cream. the piece was all topped with pureed raspberry sauce and finished with whipped cream on the side. Easy summer dessert actually. But oh my, the scales must lie next week! We managed to finish it all.
Tomorrow we head back to the cold and rain, so I have to pick up last minute surprises for my kids at home. There isn't enough to thank them for taking care of our dogs. The last photo is of our granddaughter sitting with Barkley, our sweet golden that was left behind when her sister had to be put to sleep on Tuesday. It will be a bittersweet homecoming.
