If shopping is an option, consider me there. On Monday, it was rainy and gross, so Mom and I decided to hit the nearby Silver Sands Premium Outlet Mall. Yes, I have an outlet mall right by my home, but I love shopping, especially with Mom. When we started out, it was not very busy, but the crowds picked up as the day went on. We found some cute stuff and a potential new friend at the Loft. The rest of our trip was enjoyable, earned us our steps for the day, and finished sweet with a gelato snack. We got back to the rest of the crew at the condo and made our plans for the rest of the day. The original plan was to go to Harbour Walk Village for an early dinner and then a dolphin cruise. Unfortunately, the weather was not cooperating and we had to pass on the dolphin cruise for this trip. We still decided to do an early dinner, as we really hadn't eaten much that day and we knew we'd need plenty of time to pack up before we headed out.
Dinner was at Margaritaville and it was definitely a memorable place to have our last dinner together. We started off with drinks and this crowd of 30+ got a kick out of our waitress demanding to see everyone's IDs. All the kids went with the blender size drinks. We started off with the pretzel sticks, which were tasty when paired with queso and mustard aioli. The food was great, the restaurant had a cool view of the harbour, and my parents enjoyed watching concert clips while we ate. The most impressive food selections at Margaritaville that night were the boys' Volcano Burgers that required a fork to eat and my giant club sandwich. It was a fun farewell dinner. After dinner, we walked around Harbour Walk. There were a few souvenir shops, several snack places, and a lot of potential. It didn't seem like it was totally occupied yet. It had cooled off a bit, so we stopped for Starbucks. Mike and I are also popcorn lovers, so we stopped by the Popcorn Jungle for plane snacks. We headed back to the condo to get our pack on and make sure that we were all ready to go home the next morning.
