lunch and a view

Steve and I headed out for an early dinner Saturday in Port Royal.   Stopped on the way at an antique shop and bought a few embroidered handkerchiefs for a buck a piece.   Will make a few lavender sachets with them.
Our usual stop is River Haven restaurant.  We like to have lunch here because of the great shrimp and the views of the water.
Appetizer as always

looking to the Belle Grove Plantation - birthplace of president James Madison

Reflections in the river
