Real Old Man took this past week off work so we've been doing some of our favorite things- hanging at the beach, going out to eat and shopping. One of our favorite places to shop is St. Armand's Circle. Love the art galleries, clothing boutiques, jewelry stores and restaurants. The lush tropical landscaping and amazing statues make St. Armand's such a beautiful and unique place to shop.
Yesterday, after making sure ROM had plenty of cash and our bank cards on him we headed out to do some serious shopping at St. Armand's. Others may say they are visiting St. Armand's, but I have the photos to prove it-LOL (That's a joke for some of my friends on Twitter).
And look @SweeetBea - the Columbia Restaurant! See, we were spelling it right all along! I had recently offered to take a Twitter "acquaintance" to eat here but she turned me down.
We decided to eat at the Crab and Fin, one of our favorite places. The outdoor seating area is deeply shaded, and with the over head fans it was cool and comfortable even during the heat of the day.
Such a lovely little place- even had a piano player providing pleasant background music as we dined, chatted and people watched.
Nothing better on a hot day than a plate of chilled sweet and delicious fresh shrimp.
And what should we see drive by as we were eating? The Ritz Carlton bus! The Twitter "acquaintance" I mentioned earlier said she was staying there on her recent visit to St. Armand's. I waved just in case she was on the bus, 'cause I'm friendly like that dontcha' know?
One of my purchases was the outfit in the middle of the first photo and also two new mumus. You know I love my mumus!
