Confederate Cruisin'

Yesterday Alyssa and I took a great neighborhood walk (while the guys braved the heat on a run), stopping at that fantastic little cafe on Ellwood. We shared a basil lemonade slushie (AMAZING) and a vegan banana nut muffin. So tasty! Later in our tiny kitchen, we all teamed up to make a delicious spicy lemon pasta before crashing on the couch to watch episodes of House until the late hours of the night.
Today we decided to do more exploring, so we set out for downtown and hopped on one of these boats (reminiscent of a Disneyland jungle cruise) and got a 40-minute tour of the canal. Oh, did I mention it was only $5 per person?!
The boats.
Looking fly and waiting for our ship to sail.
A view of Tobacco Row from the canal. The abandoned tobacco factories have now been converted into trendy lofts and apartments.

My brother, all grown up.
After the cruise we got brunch and a pitcher of mimosa-goodness at F.W. Sullivan's. Right now we're cooling off in our apartment (a beautiful, A/C controlled 80 degrees) before heading out to see those Flying Squirrels. Michael is already set on buying a t-shirt, and I'm crossing my fingers for some garlic fries and shiska-berries like the ones at Safeco Field.

Stay tuned...Virginia Beach and Washington DC are some of our upcoming adventures!
