The Fourth Day Brings Octopus

Pool, Beach, Pool. It was a good day. The lady who cleans our room even left Ezra a little towel-gift.

Dinner on the other hand…this day brought us to the Italian restaurant called Mama Mia’s. We decided that when we started the meal, we would ask if we could do it in a hurry…apparently, that is all we needed to say any of the other nights. Dinner would probably take someone who is not time constricted by a baby about 1.5 hours. The first two nights exceeded an hour, and exceeded Ezra’s tolerance for sitting in a high chair. Last night: 35 minutes start to finish.

The minestrone was good, and the antipasto was equally as tasty, so we had high expectations for the main course. Ahna ordered spaghetti with vegetables, and I ordered spaghetti with seafood and garlic. In my head, my dish would be noddles, shrimp, clams, and cream sauce. In reality, my dish was noodles, clams, oysters, salad shrimp, red sauce, and tentacles. Lots of tentacles with suction cups. I am pretty certain that there was more than one octopus in the dish, but I never actually counted the number of tentacles to see if they exceeded 8. I decided to eat around them, and enjoy some noodles…which did in fact taste fine and satisfied my hunger.

On the way back to the room, we took some photos of the lay of the land (the last four pictures – and the big one – are of our building):



  1. Tentacles are tasty! Sounds familiar though…Tom was going to make a seafood pasta dish for dinner at our place last night, except that Hafner’s game was cancelled and freed her to come. So we had pesto pasta with vegetables, seafood on the side. The salad was a spinach and fresh herb blend. We had roasted sweet potatoes, parsnips, and onions with oil and balsamic vinegar. Strawberries & cream for dessert. Yum! It was so good. Only thing missing was you…so cheesy, I know…
