So I was turning 26.
It may not have been 30, but I was having a pre-Joey moment, I guess you could say.
It’s not always great getting older, but you want to know what is great??
1.) Botanical Gardens
and guess what I got to do on my BIRTHDAY?
1.) Go to Marie Selby Botanical Gardens
2.) Eat delicious food at Owen’s Fish Camp
Oh, and did I mention that the botanical garden was having an ORCHID SHOW!?!? I mean when the entrance has hanging orchids, you know its going to be a good day.
So. Many. Flowers.
Look at these cuties…
Ok, so Owen’s Fish Camp. My mom was actually in town the night before my birthday and we had TRIED to eat at Owen’s Fish Camp, but about 30 minutes after opening, they already had an HOUR AND A HALF wait time.
That’s when I knew it was good.
So for my birthday we planned to get at the Fish Camp RIGHT when it opened! Thank goodness we did because again, about 30 minutes after we were seated all the tables were full and there was a wait out the door.
The effort was so worth it. Well executed southern food can make any girl swoon. Oh and the BANGIN Sangria helps too 😉
Overall, it was the perfect day filled with all my favorite things 🙂
Love always, Arianna the Wandering Pipette
