My husband's 48th high school mini-reunion took place on a 3-hour Sunset Cruise on a local river.
I went to the same high school, just one year behind Tommy, so I knew some of his classmates.
It was a lovely cruise - just one brief shower of rain, but plenty of seats inside. We cruised past Bellingrath Gardens, and some beautiful homes on the river. Saw some wildlife, including a nesting osprey, and enjoyed a gorgeous sunset over the water!
Before boarding the riverboat, and before I squirted tomato juice down my shirt, from a crabmeat-stuffed cherry tomato!

Tommy made a video of the cruise.

Everyone brought finger food hors d'oevres to share, and some homemade gumbo, too (delicious!). We were almost too full to appreciate the restaurant meal afterwards, but still had room for dessert! (Blackberry cobbler, included with the meal of boiled shrimp, potatoes and Conecuh sausage)
