Our Red Hat Party

Ready to party.  L to R: Ann, me, Gail, Pat W., Peggy, Sally

After spending most of Tuesday visiting Museums, the Capitol, and the Legislative Building, my friends and I topped off the day with a limo drive to Relish Café for dinner as we donned our red hats and wore purple. 

To begin the evening, we "posed" for pictures in our red hats.

As we were posing out on the front porch, our limo arrived.  I had arranged with Dwight of Smith Luxury Limosines in Raleigh to pick us up.  It was a surprise to my friends and it was the first limo ride anyone of us had taken.  (Back when we got married limos for the bride and groom were not usual.).
We found it was a little difficult for us "seniors" to get in and out of the limo.  Lots of laughs with that.

Mark our limo driver first took us on a tour of downtown Raleigh and then over to Relish Café where we had dinner.

A trip to Local Fresh on Glenwood Avenue after dinner for ice cream was a must, even though it was a bit chilly.  The ice cream was as good as always.

But all good things come to an end.  My friends went back to their homes in Shelby on Wednesday morning.

We had FUN, and we are already planning an adventure for next year!!!
