He took me to the island. The Yurts were booked, so this time he got us a very nice Bed and Breakfast to stay at.
We actually got the chance to see the sunset on the island this trip. It happens on the west of the island where there is just one marina and restaurant/pub. You can see all the people that walk all the way out and get photos of it.
This is the island grocery store. I love the flowers up on the roof.
Friday nights, on the island, one particular location sells wings from 5-7pm. They are marinated, then they are baked, and finally grilled. Oh my gosh they were good. Messy but good. People come over to the island just to eat them. If you don't get your order in early, they do run out and you go without. It was totally worth waiting for. What a busy place, but oh so good.
As for the "sort of" part, we had "date crashers" arrive. Four family members showed up late Saturday night, so we spent the night directing them around the island for their first time. We ended up so tired we went directly to bed after that.
If we get a chance to go back over again, we have a plan for new places to eat. The owner to the bed and breakfast, has a farm (her family) on the island with meat cattle and chickens. We actually had their eggs for our breakfast. Anyway, we found out where they sell the steaks from those cattle, so we'll be back to try a locally, grass fed steak.
I took this photo from a small Mexican eatery on the island. The cattle are right across the street.
Well, although my postings look like we had a 2 week vacation, it was only a week (and in and out of the homestead).
I'm afraid to go out and visit the garden yet this morning. It's back to work today for us. I will try to catch up on all your blogposts soon. I am sure my chickens need their coop clean and my utility room has a mountain of dirty clothes. Oh my gosh, you should see the weeds in my rose bed too. One night of rain, and gone for 3 days....yikes!!
