June 26, 1999 . . .

Pea and I went on our first date. I had been in my new house for a week. When he picked me up I was so excited to show him all around - even though most of the rooms weren't painted and there was plastic lawn furniture in the living room until the couch was delivered. But, being the granddaughter of a florist, I did have plenty of vases around. Which was good, because he brought me a beautiful rose.

It was a really warm night, and his parents had borrowed his car for a long trip. He had their car, which had no a/c. I didn't care . . . . actually I barely noticed. He took me to a lovely restaurant for dinner, and after that we walked on the beach. I've found some pictures here, but don't want to infringe on any copyrights by posting directly to my blog. If you click on the link and scroll to the second picture you'll see "our spot". There are two benches in front of those trees, a little to the left. We sat there and looked at the water, swatted bugs, and talked . . . and talked . . . and talked. (No kissing, he was quite the gentleman!!)

We've been back often to visit "our bench". One of my favorite visits was in May 2003. We sat on our bench and Pea proposed!!

Come back tomorrow for Part 2!!
