A Perfect Evening

Tempe, AZ   High 89  Low 64

I know I couldn't have survived these last four months without the help of Ginny and Mickey. From taking care of the propane for me, moral support when I had a breakdown, to completely taking care of Skitz and Rocky for us - they were always right there. The night I had to call 911 for Jim, Ginny threw on a bathrobe and came over to make sure I was okay and to take care of the dogs. I can't begin to thank them for all they have done for us.

We did want to take them out to dinner and as you all know, I love Groupon. I found one for The Watershed, a restaurant located in the Lakes community on Lakeshore Drive in Tempe. Another adventure since we had never been here or knew of anyone who had ever eaten there.

I forgot to take a picture of the entrance so I found this one on the web which was taken by Dana Voigt.

 Thursday night was the night and we could not have picked a more perfect evening. The weather was incredible. 

Ginny and Jim ordered the lobster ravioli and crab meatballs. Mickey and I had the fish and chips. The food was very good. My only complaint was that the bar did not have a blender and could not make frozen drinks. I couldn't believe that a bar would not have a blender.

After dinner the Groupon also included a boat ride through the upscale neighborhood. They only allow electric motors so the ride was so quiet and peaceful. The lake is 55 acres and there were a lot of boats tied up to docks by the houses. One guy has a really unique "boat".

I bet this place is beautiful at Christmas time when they have their boat parade.

To end this wonderful evening with such good friends, we were treated to this incredible sunset.

Thanks again Ginny and Mickey. We sure are going to miss you this summer.
