Joe's Crab Shack

This one was fun! The atmosphere is really fun- the servers even dance- and everyone is really relaxed. Our waitress, a little too talkitive for me, expained the whole menu (Danny liked this). They offered all sorts of sea food and tons of yummy drinks. I ended up with a pomegrante margarita that had pop rocks in it! Sounds crazy, but it was really good! Dan had some sort of shark attack thing- our waitress had to yell "everyone out of the water" when bringing it to us. Oh my.

As for food, we had A LOT of it. Appetizer: Make your own... it came with crab dip and then we picked motzerella sticks and great balls of fire. These were crap, shrimp, lobster, and peppers rolled into a ball and fried. Actually, pretty yummy.


Danny then ordered this HUGE steampot. It had two kinds of crab legs, potatoes, shrimp, corn, and probably other things that I am forgetting. It was a lot of work to eat, but he seemed to enjoy it.
I had shrimp alfredo. It was a big portion, but also really good. A lot of shrimp in there!

Overall, it was a little expensive, but a fun and easy going place to eat. And speaking of the sea....

Mom and I got back from our cruise on Friday. It was a lot of fun! I tried to plan everything well, and mainly it all worked out. Our flights were on time and we got on the boat and such. Mom wasnt too bad in the air, despite hating flying, and though we were a little cramped overall the travel was fine.

The cruise itself was wonderful. Its so nice to be on the blue blue water. Our first stop was Key West- such a cool place! We went kayaking through shallow mangroves, and though it took us a bit to get the hang of it, eventually we could steer pretty well. We saw a lot of cool baby animals and it was amazing to on the water and just float.

Our next stop was Cozumel, Mexico... what a place! We went on a snorkel, sail, and beach party which was pretty cool. It was a little cloudy that day, but the snorkeling was amazing. They just let of off the boat and I was kinda like... well.. ok. But you look down and there are such amazing fish! It was wonderful.
Mom and I had a great time.

And now its the middle of April... Apple Blossom and then graduation and then grad school are fast approaching. Very crazy!
