At the end of our stay at Palm Creek, Pam got lucky and was able to take the “Bowl Turning” class; someone cancelled. The class took 6 days to complete the bowl and cost $130. There were 5 students and each one made a unique bowl.
The bottom is from a solid piece of Cherry, then a Dark Walnut Ring and finally, a Babinga Ring. The rings are made up of 12 wedge shaped pieces. A real challenge, but the bowl turned out great.
Today we celebrated our 11th wedding anniversary. We played 9 holes of golf – Pam had a legit birdie so we celebrated with a shot of birdie juice. Pam made a cauliflower yellow curry with chicken. Fantastic. We of course had Singha beer. All in all a great day!
On Monday, Terry and Kirk returned to Palm Creek for the week.
Pam grilled homemade pizza Monday evening and we had a nice fire and drinks.
Tuesday, Kelly played pickleball in the morning, and then we both played in the March Madness Golf Event. An18 hole scramble here at Palm Creek. We were paired up with Karen and took 5th place shooting 3 under par.
Thursday, the group went for dinner at Perch Brewery. They have a collection of over 50 brightly colored, tropical rescue birds. See blog post for pictures and details
Friday, we played another 9 holes of golf on the back nine at Palm Creek. Pam is really getting better; she had 2 legitimate pars! These lead to “Birdie Juice” shots! Kelly also played well and shot 3 over; 6 pars, 1 bogey and 1 double bogey after hitting into the creek.
We finished the week having dinner at the Airport Tavern. Highly recommend this dive bar / restaurant. They had live music outside. On Friday and Saturdays, they server Rib Eye Steak Dinner for $1/oz + $10. They buy 1 slab of beef and cut up all the rib eye steaks into different sizes and put them on a white board by size and hash marks for the number available. By the time we got there, the total was getting low. All the food was very good.
