Romantic First Date Revisited

Where did you go on your first date?

Gwynly and I went out to dinner at Scotts on the Embarcadero
in San Francisco and enjoyed a fancy fish dinner. Afterward
we crashed the Junior-Senior Prom at the high school
where he was teaching, held at a restaurant in Berkeley.

First Date

I figure we’re one of the few couples who received an 8×10 photograph
to commemorate the event. The photographer wanted us to get all cozy
as prom couples are apt to do, but I insisted we keep things semi-formal.
It was our first date, after all.


Earlier this month we were able to relive our first date.

PHS Prom 2

We volunteered to count the royalty ballots at his high school’s prom.

PHS Prom 3

Unlike our first prom when I was ill-at-ease, this experience was wonderful.
I had a great time talking with the young people and admiring their finery.

The best part of the evening, though, was spending time
with my guy as we relived a special memory.


I’d love to hear about your first date.
Where did you go? What did you do?
What made the date extra special for you?

Feel free to share a prom memory.
