Nephele's....

7:53 am - Wednesday - I am awake.....it is overcast.....different is good.  I am awake because I went to bed so early.  TLE even beat me out of bed this morning.

Another of our seasonal couples departed TVC yesterday (John and Deb) for a long planned trip to France and Italy.  We are down 5 employees over the past 10 days and within the next 10 days we'll be down some more as the season also winds down.  Section E's ghostown like appearance reminds me of early May.

We pretty much hung out at the coach all day Tuesday relaxing, and just enjoying the quiet of Section E.  I was pretty much a 'slug' all day long, but sometimes you need a day like that.  Since we worked Monday night (Monday, as you know was our 45th anniversary) we went to dinner Tuesday night.  Long time Newell friends Richard and Rhonda had eaten at Nephele's last summer and were quite enthusiastic about their experience.  We had wanted to have our 44th anniversary dinner there, but our plans to be on the road on our anniversay on our way to Cape Blanco interfered, so this year we made reservations several weeks in advance to be sure we got a good table.  Yelp, by the way, gives them 4 stars on 166 reviews......


.....we arrived about 5 minutes early for our 6 pm reservation and were seated immediately at our corner table near a large picture window.....



.....we immediately ordered their very popular 'Seafood Cheesecake'....I know, sounds kind of weird, but it is amazing......we would return just to order this appetizer with a good bottle of wine it was that good.

......I ordered their Louisiana Roasted King Salmon for my entree, and TLE one of their specials....Almond Crusted Baked Grouper.....her side was the House Salad, and mine was the soup of the day, Shrimp Gazpacho, served cold.  Everything exceeded our expectations including this fabulous dessert TLE and I split.....


.....Chocolate Toffee Ice Cream Cake.......what a way to end our anniversary dinner!

We were home by 8 pm, changed clothes and began our walk around TVC....we had intended to walk all four sections to kind of work off a little of the stuffed feeling we both had, but stopped off in Section G to talk to customers and friends, Chuck and Kelly, who were outside watching a TV program.  Chuck and Kelly have been coming to TVC from Scottsdale, AZ for 20 summers now.  Chuck and Kelly were married here in SLT 30 years ago, and honeymooned here just like TLE and I did 45 years ago.  We were in bed a little after 10 pm.....

Thanks for stopping by!
