Valentines Day Weekend

On Saturday I took Paula to the Satilla River for our first canoe trip together. We spent a few hours on the river, covered about 2 miles and had a picnic consisting of peanut butter and honey sandwiches on homemade bread, carrot sticks, bananas and Oreos.

On our trip back to Brunswick we stopped at a sketchy little place called Club Ponderosa on Burnt Fort Rd. (As far as we could tell, there is no actual "burnt fort"). The clerk at the counter told me that they were setting up for a Valens-tine day party...
Anyway, this sign was out front.

Later that night (after showering and cleaning up) we went to our favorite Thai restaurant (Tuptim Thai on US Route 341) in Brunswick for a romantic candlelight dinner where we exchanged the traditional flowers, balloons, cards, chocolates and so on...
