Saturday’s wedding was a big one, 188 guests, we had to add a tent on the back of the stable. The brown and green looks great with the wood of the stable and the lush green surroundings.

Saturday night I went on a date with my honey. We went to a vegan restaurant in Tampa called The Loving Hut. The building looks really shady, but the food was really tasty, I was pleasantly surprised. My vegan cheesesteak was so good, I ordered another to take to lunch the next day, Matt got the pad thai and we split some fries and something called the drumstick, which was an fried appetizer stuffed with mushroom and other yummy stuff:

Sunday night was fun. My boss gave us 2 tickets to the Blues Festival in St Pete. We listened to some great music, had some great food. We each had a taco from the Taco Bus, I had 2 delish ribs, and we split a gyro which went unpictured:

The highlight of the evening was our dolphin encounter by the water. It may be the coolest thing that has ever happened to me. We decided to go sit on the seawall and enjoy the sunset.

There was a dolphin sighting out in the distance. I had this crazy idea to try to call the dolphin over with my mind. I concentrated on the water below my feet and thought of sending my thoughts to the dolphin. I did not expect anything to happened, and I’m not even sure why I tried it, but within 30 seconds, I kid you not, that dolphin swam directly under our feet, on its side looking up at us with its big beautiful eye, turned around when it got right passed us and swam back under our feet looking at us, the swam away. It was surreal. We kept saying “did that really just happen?” It was incredible.
