Thursday (3-19-15) was “Lobster Night” at the Quarter Deck on the Pier in Dania. Karen and I left in the boat under an ominous cloud cover to partake in the $14.95 treats. A break in the menacing sky created the ideal opportunity for Karen to try out her new camera. “So, what comes out of god’s crack?” Sunshine!
As expected, the restaurant was packed. Karen scrounged up two seats at the bar for us while I secured the boat at the dock. When I took my seat it was Karen’s chance to go outside and catch some killer sunset pics.
The wind continued to build off the Atlantic and kept the crowds down out on the Pier. A cool new feature on Karen’s camera made the otherwise mundane shot much more interesting.
The sunset was merging with the shoreline to the south for this last outdoor shot before dinner.
This lobster may look angry, but it was very tasty indeed!
The Super New Moon made for some extremely high and low tides. It also added to the eeriness of the dark night sky.
The bright lights of Port Everglades not only made loading cargo easier, navigation became a snap. This is not a sight most people see on their way home from a night out.
No excursion with a new camera would be complete without a selfie. Karen captures the light of Port Everglades in our wake and shows off her sassy new do. Thursday’s date night was a huge success.
