Saturday Evening – in SOBE - Nov 10 -2007
My daughter had plans for me. She would show her papa the real taste of South Miami Beach. Where people meet. And a real VOSS Water account. Good food as well.
Besides, she had ambitious plans for Sunday. (Next post). After a Saturday early afternoon I will never forget: A Memorial (will be posted next week) – very, very strong experience. You might know where we were?
I was told to dress properly and shine my shoes and shave. What else than to obey? Ingelin know the dress code around.
They do have a very efficient transportation system in Miami Beach. Even for 60+ people like me.
Went out – she lives close to everything important here, so no Taxi was needed. Besides we love to walk – Vikings you know.
She asked me where I wanted to have dinner. How could I know? I had no clue at all. Besides I observed what I did. First we went into Raleigh.
- papa, do you want to have dinner here?
- It’s wonderful, I like it here – what’s the options?
- Well, we can walk to Delano – It’s just a minutes walk from here
- ‘cause I want you to see a real VOSS account
- Lets’s do it, I said
Then we went out. To Delano
The entrance hall, the Bar, les meublements, the décor, all splendid. Quelle rafinnement. – absolutely at the upper shelf.
- Do you want to have dinner here, Ingelin asked, when we sat there, In the backyard
- Yeah, I said (This might be very, very expensive I thought - but haha, the $ is so low nothing is expensive here anymore)
- OK, I’ll ask for a Table - Ingelin said and did.
No Tables for us for at least one houre, as we wanted our dinner served outside. Norwegians you know. We are crazy about outdoor life.
Then we returned to Raleigh. Got a table – outdoor.
Wonderful and pro service. We both had Yellow Snapper. (First time for me – only Red Snappers before).
I did start with Florida Frog Legs. Haha – do you remember our visit to Everglades?
Two glasses of White for Papa, one Red for Ingelin. And a bottle of Pelligrino.
We shared the dessert. Marvellous. Delicious. My regular readers do know I prefer fresh Forest Berries and real Vanilla - This time: Vanilla Marrengs. Heavenly.
Then we walked home. After a Saturday I will never forget. Ingelin knows SOBE. And where to go. More to come..... (so short a stay and so much to tell)
