We had our special dinner date this evening with the family to celebrate Mom and Dad’s Golden Anniversary; I knew it was going to be one of the highlights of our trip…so of course I had to pack a dress for the occasion!!
Don’t let the sunshine fool you…it was pretty darn cold out there on the back deck of my parents’ cottage!! But with a pair of tights and my go-to long cardigan (I’m so glad I brought it with me to New Brunswick!) I managed to stay reasonably cozy.
Because tourist season in St. Andrews doesn’t officially begin until the May long-weekend, many businesses aren’t open regular hours just yet…so my sister had to pull a few strings to arrange our reservation; tonight, “The Europa” was open only for the six of us!! Talk about V.I.P. treatment!!
Our meals were delicious, with everyone (except vegetarian me!) enjoying a traditional german Wiener Schnitzel. And the final excitement of the evening?? A surprise fireworks show on the beach care of my thoughtful husband!!
