An Engagement Dinner

My friend, Madonna, at A Mommy Talks posted this activity, which is currently floating among bloggers.  I actually read about the activity on Rachael’s page, so go visit her also.
Here are the directions:
  1. Go to your photo files, select the 8th photo folder.
  2. Select the 8th photo in that folder.
  3. Post that photo along with the story behind it.
  4. Then challenge 8 blogging friends to do the same!
Here’s what I found:
Trogir patio
What a great memory.  This was our unofficial engagement dinner.  Josh had proposed while we were relaxing at the hotel in Split and we were on a mission to find a souvenir of the trip—the engagement ring.  We made our way down the coast through all the little towns, looking for a jewelry store.  We stopped for dinner in Marina and hoped to enjoy an evening on the patio.  We were able to watch people setting up for a concert/political event.  As we sat at the restaurant eating our food, it started to rain so we finished inside.  Oh, how the owner rushed to get us inside quickly!  We were the only people there so we got great service. 
After that, we carefully made our way back out of Marina—no easy task, being right on the coast, with narrow roads full of cars and people headed to the evening’s event, water on our right, and hills and houses on our left—and went to Trogir where we didn’t find a ring, but we did find awesome gelato and a concert.
A few highlights from that trip can be found here.  You’ll notice the only highlights I chose to talk about were food-related.  We loved the food on that trip!
I’m not tagging anyone for this activity, but I’d love to see your 8th picture!
