After my son's retirement ceremony we all went to a favorite Italian restaurant off base for dinner. Our family and about 30 airmen filled several long tables. It was fun with all the teasing my son got as well as well wishes. He received several gifts from his friends and the restaurant brought out their best house wine. They all laughed at me taking pictures of the food.
Surrounded by mountains It's a pretty place. Most of these building are visitor quarters. I was standing in front of the one my family stayed in. The rooms are very nice. Ours was a 3 bedroom with kitchen and living dining combination.
I got a few pictures of the food before they all dug in.
Not sure if this was a vegetable or a dessert. Looked interesting anyway.
All kinds of shellfish. I think this was Brittany's. She ordered the same thing almost every meal.
This was mine. Grilled and baked Eggplant. Wish I had some right now.
I loved listening to all the teasing and was so proud of the compliments but they kept it full of laughter so things didn't get heavy. I think he was a little sad to be leaving some of his friends but was excited about starting a new chapter in his life.
