Today the sun was finally shining! It’s been grey and raining for days and when the sun was shining through the blinds I thought this was my chance for a selfie of sorts. So here is my version of this week’s photo challenge – Blinded by the Light.
I was with my daughter and grandson at Disneyland this December, having a late lunch at the Blue Bayou Restaurant and my grandson was fascinated with the glow cube from his mom’s drink, a Louisiana Lemonade! This object kept him occupied for quite a while which made our lunch more pleasant. The cube slowly changes colors, another factor that contributed to his being completely occupied by it. This was my first time eating there as an adult. My parents brought us to Disneyland a few times when I was young and one of my memories from there was looking at the “fireflies” that were in the trees. You can even here the chirping crickets and the croaking frogs. I’m glad there are no buzzing mosquitos like you find here in Louisiana! I don’t know how the menu compares now to how it was in the late 60’s. I do believe they have always offered the Monte Cristo sandwich. The Blue Bayou Restaurant is located in New Orleans Square. The atmosphere is very romantic, the tables are located next to a bayou at twilight and you watch the boats from the Pirates of the Caribbean float by. This restaurant is very popular and usually advance reservations are needed. We were lucky enough to get a same day reservation that morning!
This Weekend’s View
Orange Beach, Alabama – This morning it was 31 degrees, rather chilly but it warmed up quickly. The water was calm this morning so we were able to watch a few school of dolphins feeding. This was taken at sunset on Thursday but we have been so busy cleaning this is the first chance I have had to post, so posting a photo fit better for me today. 🙂 Enjoy!
