JULY 31, 2013 (Wednesday)
Today we started late because we wanted to listen to Mark Silverman’s internet radio show, Talking Timeshares. It’s been awhile since we’ve been able to listen to him. It was nice and we learn new things every time.
After the radio show, we decided to just take a ride around the scenic route. First we went to WalMart to get some batteries because they had died in my camera. It’s totally different and the parking was underneath. Also, we got some sea sick patches (the dot kind behind the ear) that you need a prescription for in the U.S.
- Canadian Walmart
After Walmart, we just drove. It was lovely. We saw new areas and so much water. Beautiful homes. We even saw a fawn on a front lawn. So cute.
Michael and I were both surprised at how many new mega-mansions are being built, and how many homes are for sale. It felt a lot like driving around Pacific Grove, Monterey, Carmel and Pebble Beach. We even were able to find Beacon Hill Park, which was a surprise because it is so close to the Empress Hotel and the Museum.
Michael and I had read about a fish place called Red Fish Blue Fish. We decided to have dinner there. It’s on the wharf. We parked on Wharf Street and walked around looking for the place. Edie spotted a carved door front from 1843. It was neat. We found the restaurant down by the water, walked down a long ramp to the place. The line was really long, but we were expecting it because of what we had read. When we were called to get the food, it was excellent. Really good. Wouldn’t mind going back again. Reasonably priced too. Our dinner bill for two entrees (fish and chips), one soup, and one key lime pie ice cream was around $34.00. Michael and I were both stuffed. When we left, the line was even longer so we were glad we got there early.
After dinner we drove past the Maritime Museum, past a car Edie finds cute and back home to meet our landlord, Bonnie, for the first time.
That was our day. Hope yours was grand!
