020213 Date Day

Another Saturday spent with my knight in shining armor! 

If you've never been to a Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World you have missed a fabulous opportunity 
to shop  in an over-the-top outdoorsy atmosphere. At the back of the stores & all throughout 
are taxidermied animals & fun displays.Check it out:

This wall at the rear of the store reaches about 3 stories high with a cascading waterfall diorama scene. 
And that enormous chandelier is one of a pair - spectacular. Here's the view from underneath:

Here's a small airplane, complete with rotating propeller & dummy pilot!

Here's the ammo aisle. Note the empty shelves behind DH - those are for handgun ammo - hmmmm...

And this must be why:

Hardly a handgun to be had. The arming of America?
Now on to Michael's to check out their clearance sale. Not much left...
And to Petco for a new sweater for Lila - she gets too wet in the snow & needs a spare...

On to lunch at Joe's Crab Shack.

Hot crab dip appetizer anyone?

East Coast Platter: 
Fish and chips, crab stuffed shrimp and a made-from-scratch crab cake. Served with onion strings.

Maine Grill: 
Bacon wrapped shrimp & scallops along with a steamed lobster. Served with seasoned rice & vegetables.

And as if that wasn't enough? 

S'mores cake... groan
Grocery run later, then home to watch Sherlock Holmes - A Game of Shadows.

A girl could get used to days like this!


  1. I think the theme for the day was large items hanging from the ceiling! Wow! That was all a feast for the eyes. You guys deserve some nice, happy days out. Thanks for sharing your outing.

  2. All the men in my family love that place, and most of us wives don't mind tagging along either. It is over the top.


Would love to know you've been here! Feedback most welcome
