Another goodbye....




 


It's that time once again to say goodbye, or as we like to say, it's NOT goodbye but instead it's "see ya later".  Another two of my good friends have moved.  Renee left Wednesday or her way to head out to Portland, Oregon and StacEy left on Friday for Bahrain.  I'm amazed that we were able to find a time this close to their departure that we were all able to get together but we did.  We all met at Yana's in Swansboro on a Tuesday morning,  for a deeeelish "see ya later" breakfast.  And boy was it good!  They have these things called Fritters and Kristy was the only one that had ever had them.  She ordered one of each of them for us all to share - apple, peach, banana and strawberry.  I was thinking it would be something that we would all get maybe one bite of but no!  They brought out these huge bowls of fruit fitters piled on top of each other.  They were little pieces of fruit fried in a dough similar to funnel cake, then topped with powdered sugar and just a dollop of whip cream.  They were amazing!!! I could barely eat my breakfast after sampling all of the fruit fritters.  They definitely need to be something that you order every time you go there.  


I think I've died and gone to fritter heaven......



 
While we were eating our fritters and waiting on the rest of our breakfast, we gave them their "See Ya Later" gifts, a piece of pottery with Camp Lejeune on it. A little something to remember us by.





 We had so much fun, eating, laughing, talking and being loud and generally being inappropriate. Everyone kept asking us what we were celebrating. And really, we were celebrating one of the best things in life - friendship.


Before any of us could leave, we all had to make a special trip to the bathroom. It wasn't because the fritters got to us, it was to  see if we could get Elvis to talk to us. You see, there is a life size Elvis cut out that stands pretty much directly in front of the toilet in the girls restroom. If you're lucky enough, he'll talk to you.

After I got done given Elvis some special lovin, he kindly thanked me by saying, "Thank ya verra much!' Whoo hooo!


Then of course, there were a few tears as we all hugged and said our "see ya laters" and went our separate ways.  Be safe Renee and StacEy, keep in touch, start your own blogs and I'll see you again one day.  

Our ever growing smaller group......
