January 7, 2018  Sunday beach walk with friends

Our friends Dean and Janine had friends Eric and Patti visiting, and they all joined us for a nice beach walk on the north side of Hopkins.

First stop - Luba Laruga Cool Spot

Second stop - Swinging Armadillo

Third stop - Queen Bean

Fourth stop - Driftwood Beach Bar & Pizza Shack

Fifth stop - Rhum Shack

We made it to "Hawaii", where the lagoon meets the sea!

We made it back around dark, then went to Peer's Place to check out the live blues.

Our friend Emma's parents were visiting and she wanted a picture with them, but we couldn't seem to get everyone smiling
and in focus at the same time.

We stopped for a visit and ice cream at Nice Cream, our friends' cute little artisan ice cream shop.

Pretty sunset view from our friends' rooftop deck.

On the way back home we stopped by the new bar at Coconut Row Guest House, where local drummers and dancers were
performing for a group of their guests.

January 17, 2018  Birthday Party and Mini-golf Tournament at Windschief Beach Bar

This Wednesday was the monthly mini golf tournament at Windschief Beach Bar.

The event always draws a nice crowd.

It also happened to be the birthday of our friend Ruxandra - Happy Birthday, Ruxy!

January 23, 2018  Party at the bamboo bar

Our friends Mark and Sabrina had a break between guests in their vacation rental, so they decided to have a party at their
place, which everyone lovingly refers to as the "bamboo bar". It was a great time, as always.
