Anna, thank you for the lovely pics! They are amazing and really captured the essence of our feast. I do have to make a correction. The dish you labeled as herbed Feta is in fact calamari ceviche. Again thank you so much for the pics and your company during the feast.----Glenn

Glad everyone is enjoying the eye-candy!

Glenn: Thanks for letting me know -- and I'm assuming it was your dish. Corrected it. Was great to enjoy the meal with you as well.
