This is the first time I have ever posted a trip report... sorry its not as exciting as most, but I tried!
Left home at 7:30 a.m., and stopped off for breakfast. We got to the Jett Express around 10:45 a.m., the next Jett did not leave until 11:45 a.m. So we just chilled and waited. Nothing else was open yet around there, so we didn’t have much choice really…. Usually we take the Miller, but my best friend works for a radio station and gave us free tickets for the Jett. We got over to the island around 12:30. Stopped at Harriet’s House and picked up our golf cart, chatted with Denny for a while and then we were off again headed for the English Pines. Dropped our bags off, changed our clothes and then it was finally drinking time, so off to the winery we went. Twisted off the cap to our first bottle of Pink Catawba around 3:30, had some cheese and cracker, then got another bottle. After 2 bottles, we decided it was time to slow down and pace ourselves, we just can’t drink like we used to!! LOL Decided to take a golf cart ride and take a look around the island for a while before we started drinking again. Funniest thing of the weekend (probably had to be there to find it as amusing as we did) We were over by the airport and there was a mama goose , daddy goose (not sure what a male is called) and their goslings in the ditch, I told my husband that it looked like she/he was getting mad the closer we were getting…….sure enough she came flying straight for me, I am screaming my husband is trying to hit it with the golf cart to keep it from attacking me, needless to say I have bruises on my arm from that stupid goose biting me, thank goodness for alcohol and being half tipsy or it might have hurt!! We were laughing so hard we were crying!!!! I laughed about it all weekend. Finally after climbing on top of my husband trying to get away from it and almost crashing our golf cart, she quit attacking me!! I knew geese were mean, but geeze!!!! Ha ha ha from there we went to Mr. Ed’s and talked to Steve! I asked him if he knew what a Jer-bear or “something” like that was. He said yes…. Well after 2 of those and about 6 beers I can honestly say I do not recall much more of the evening!! THANKS MILLS!!!! I read about those darn shots on one of your posts!!! Well my husband wasn’t done yet, so we headed to the Roundhouse to watch Emily’s Toy Box…. We love those guys!! After a bucket of beer and partying with a group we met in there I had to call it quits for the night. Stumbled home and seriously did not get out of bed until noon the next day!
Saturday we started the day off with our annual hangover cure / trip to Mossbacks for cheeseburgers and Bloody Mary’s. Off for another golf cart ride and fresh air, still trying to recover from our hangovers. Of course, where do we end up because we are bored with the golf car ride?? Back at the winery…… starting again, time for round two!! Left there and stopped by Frosty’s for a pitcher of beer, went over to Jetman’s boat, but he wasn’t there. Went up to the Upper Deck at the Boardwalk and had a beer or two or three, who knows!! Still didn’t see any movement at Jetman’s boat, so we gave up and went back to Ed’s, where we met a fun group of bachelors and some lady’s celebrating their 40th birthdays, hung out with all of them on the patio for a few hours. This time Steve bought us a shot, no idea what it was, but thank goodness it wasn’t as strong as the “Jer-Bear” shots!!! After that we went back over to Frosty’s for another pitcher and pizza. Every year we say we are going to go have a “nice dinner” at the Skyway, or Axel and Harry’s for our anniversary, and we never have managed to do it!!! Headed back to the Roundhouse to hear Emily’s Toy Box again. We stopped by the Beer Barrel a couple of times on both days, but it was pretty dead each time we stopped, so we didn’t stick around. Called it quits around midnight on Saturday…
Sunday was a rough day, but we managed to make it back home by 2:00. As usual we had a great time and will be back again in August and October.
