‘Orange’ you glad the weekend’s here?

Orange is the the bright and sassy theme for this week’s WordPress Photo Challenge.

When orange is called for, a shot of autumn foliage never goes amiss,

and a couple of pumpkins are also perfect.

Just for fun, let’s add a bit of African “Shake it Baby” art.

This lovely South African Coral Tree flower just wouldn’t look right in any other colour.

If all the hot orange is getting a bit much for you, this fan at Elvis Kitchen in San Pedro, should cool you down a bit.

A fabulous anniversary meal and a Christmas walk.

Our Anniversary was celebrated at the historic Sundy House restaurant in Delray. This Queen Anne style house was built in 1902 by the first mayor of Delray, and is set in a tranquil botanic garden with pools and waterfall features. We were seated out on the terrace opposite one of the  Savannah style gazebos, overlooking the ‘Cenote’, a natural freshwater, living pool. It was the perfect romantic setting for our evening out.

The menu was really tempting, and we both decided to have three courses. My crispy calamari appetiser was scrumptious, and hubby loved his butternut stuffed ravioli.

My main’s choice was Cioppino, which consisted of split Maine lobster tail, shrimp, PEI mussels, littleneck clams, roasted fennel, spicy tomato broth and grilled sourdough.

Hubby’s rack of lamb was really tender, and there was plenty of it.

I know that most of you are not at all interested in delicious desserts, but just in case one or two of you might be, here’s my Key Lime pie.

Hubby’s Creme Brulee looked to die for. It was quite small, so I didn’t beg any, but I did let him have a taste of mine. That’s true love for you. 🙂

After our meal, we decided to go into the town to see the Christmas lights. Imagine my amazement when, walking out of the restaurant, I saw hubby’s surprise anniversary present to me; a tangerine coloured Lamborghini! It might sound ungrateful of me, but I would have preferred it in silver, so I’m afraid it has to go back. It was a nice thought though.  🙂

The Christmas tree in the town square was the same as last year and the year before, but still very beautiful.

You can walk right inside it to see the Christmas displays.

Looking up from inside the tree, this is what you see; a myriad multi-coloured stars.

Outside, was a beautiful nativity scene.

I couldn’t leave without a Santa pic, could I? Doesn’t he have a jolly face?

I had such a sublime evening with the love of my life. Here’s to another great year together.

Wishing you all a superb weekend. You have less than six days left to do your Christmas shopping.
