Woke up to sun and warm. Wonderful!
Lazy morning. Around 1:00 PM, we piled into our Prius and just drove around. We were wanting to scope out Target, Walmart, and Best Buy. We are wanting to buy a new GPS because the one in the Prius is so old and frustrating at times. We’re hoping a newer, more updated one will help. Anyway, we found all three, along with some other fun things. We saw where people had been actually camping out in front of the Best Buy until it opens tonight at 6:00 PM. We also found an upside down place, I think it’s called Wonderworks, Planet Hollywood, and Boardwalk on the Beach.
Around 2:45 PM we went to the Hard Rock Cafe. It looks like a Egyptian pyramid with the lions guarding the entrance. Lovely. Once inside a guy with the highest Mohawk I’ve seen greeted us. He was fun and full of energy. We had reservations for 3:00 PM and were seated right away. The Hard Rock is fun in that you expect hard rock and weird food but it was a very traditional Thanksgiving feast – turkey, dressing, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, gravy, carrots, green bean casserole, salad, rolls. All you can eat for around $15.00. When we were done eating, you have a dessert option of pumpkin pie or chocolate mousse. Everything was good and filling. Lots of people were there by the time we left.
After dinner we headed to Walmart. They have a Garmin on sale for $69.00, but not until 8:00 PM. Normally it’s around $160.00. Michael will come back tonight and get it, if they have any. Afterwards we went “home” and lazed around. Around 7:00 PM, Michael left to go get the Garmin. He was home by 8:30 PM with it in hand. We’ll use it tomorrow when we leave for Slidell, Louisiana.
That was our day. Hope yours was great!
