Our Last Meal In Marco – Leftovers & A Serious Sunset

The evening before departing Marco Island for home, we decided we didn’t want any more restaurant meals and preferred to have a salad and use up some of our leftovers.  We still had the extra steak I’d cooked previously and meat on salad is one of Bev’s favorites, so we had salad topped with the strip steak and hoagie rolls turned into garlic bread – all were very good.  We washed it down with some V. Sattui Gamay Rouge.

We ate while watching the sunset, which was way more impressive than the first one I showed - on the verge of spectacular I'd say.  It started rather blandly, then proceeded to the sun sinking in the water (the first we'd seen), then it really got pretty as the sky looked like it was glowing embers.

I love digital cameras and the ability to easy discard half of what you take.  I specifically included the ones with boats heading home and the meandering pontoon boat in the last one.

We got home the next evening to a heat relieving temperature of 58* and awoke the next morning to 44* - I loved it, Bev not so much.  Next year we go in late November, which I know I’ll enjoy a lot more having a cool fall break between our hot summer and the hot beach.

All photos can be enlarged by clicking on them - I suggest the last 7 for sure.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by Almost Heaven South.



  1. When you get a good sunset, I can't help snapping picture after picture thinking THIS is going to be the best one. You got some great shots Larry and how nice that Mother Nature gave you a nice farewell.

    Maybe we'll be able to get together if you're there in November next year. It is cold and rainy here and I'm ready to head south and find some sun and warm weather.

  2. Spectacular! Fabulous photos Larry. I love that sun sinking in the water "thing". That's how I remember those Florida sunsets.

  3. Thanks for sharing the Sunset photos! Just beautiful.

  4. Glad you got to have a nice trip with wonderful sunsets! Always nice to get a break. I am with Bev, I am not so much for the cold.

  5. What a spectacular sunset. Doesn't get any bett than that a gorgeous sunset, good food, a fine bottle of wine and your sweetie!

  6. Turning leftovers into salad is such a great way to use them up! Good call.

    Those pictures are just gorgeous...I wouldn't have ever wanted to leave with skies like that!

  7. Larry, Now that's my kind of salad!! Great sunset photos too! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  8. Larry, what a way to enjoy the evening: beautiful sunset while dining. It doesn't get much better than that. You and Bev have a great weekend.

  9. Sailor's delight! That brilliant sunset, I know it was even more captivating in real life. It was probably one of those moments that you didn't want to end, just to last a few more minutes.
