I thought I'd stick with the NC theme for Thirsty Thursday. :) At the wine tasting, we sampled Duplin's Peach Bellini and everyone loved it so of course I couldn't leave without buying the Peach Bellini kit. You can order the kit on the Duplin Winery website and have it shipped to your house. It's super yummy so I definitely recommend you order some! ;)

The Hot Crab Dip
After lunch, we continued exploring downtown Wilmington, checked into The Wilmingtonian and then drove to Wrightsville Beach. Once we got back from the beach, we started getting ready for dinner.
We had dinner at the Riverboat Landing which is on the corner Market Street. The food was beyond AMAZING!!!! For our appetizer, we ordered the Crispy Pickles. They were better than any fried pickle I've ever had! For dinner, my mom ordered the Riverboat Crab Cakes and I ordered the Char Grilled Tuna. My mom loved the crab cakes. They were very lightly battered...it looked like they used Panko breadcrumbs. I can honestly say the Char Grilled Tuna that I ordered was the best tuna I've ever eaten. It was perfectly cooked and seasoned and the avocado salsa fresca on top was so delicious.

My prayers were answered...the weather couldn't have been more perfect! We heard there were tornadoes and flooding throughout the entire state of NC on Friday but in Wilmington, we only saw a few clouds and had a sprinkle of rain that lasted about 30 seconds. I'm so thankful for the way things worked out for us.
Tomorrow I'll tell you about our visit to the Duplin Winery. :)
