Swashbuckling Anniversary

By Tara Zandra | July 28, 2006

We chose a Pirate theme for our tenth anniversary. Trendy,  yes, but who cares? Fun! I dropped the kids off and went to pick up Chris after he got off work so our night could  begin. Disneyland, of course. First stop was the hat shop to get our pirate mouse ears. Next stop was in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle for a photo-op.

We then headed over to Pirates of the Caribbean to ride and sing a rousing chorus of “Yo Ho, Yo Ho (a pirate’s life for me).” Above this attraction is the Disney Gallery and the current display is mainly devoted to Pirates, both the movie and the ride. We browsed for a while and then checked in for our dinner reservation at Blue Bayou. This is a restaurant that is located inside the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction and we were fortunate enough to sit at the water’s edge to watch the boats go by. There was only one vegetarian choice on the menu for us. We started with a baby wedge salad, then had portebello mushrooms on a bed of couscous and top with sauteed spinach with Bayou potatoes on the side. For dessert we chose a creme brulee complete with edible pirate’s chest with cookies inside. It was all quite wonderful and couldn’t have been any better.

Now we were off to the theatre for, what else, “Pirates of the Caribbean 2: Dead Man’s Chest.” Wonderful, wonderful movie! I know we’re a bit behind but we were holding off on seeing it until our anniversary. The movie was so much fun and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

All in all a fabulous evening spent with Chris :)
