So it’s been brought to my attention, ever so nicely, that I didn’t post anything yesterday. Mostly because we didn’t do anything even remotely interesting to the vast majority who read here.

We enjoyed breakfast on our lanai as has been our habit for most of this trip and then we decided to take a ride to the grocery store and beyond, wherever our trusty red ‘69 would take us. We ended up driving around looking for restaurants we wanted to try but couldn’t, for the most part, locate. It was a silly ride but we enjoyed ourselves. And we laughed so hard. How, after all these years, could we NOT know where things are located?!

Since it was getting late, we debated on dinner. Should it be at the normal 7-7:30 time slot or should we make it a late lunch and skip dinner. We opted for the latter and headed to Marc’s again since he told us his fresh PEI mussels would be arriving fresh off the plane that day. They did and were delicious. $65.00 for dinner and soft drinks for two - the cauldron was full and J actually managed to finish them all. I tried but not quite.

Back to BSV and a quiet evening at home with a good book. Worked for us but are you bored to tears yet? Just wait till I tell you about today!!


Respectfully,

pat

Thanks for that tip about the PEI mussels at Mark's Place. Like you, there are many restaurants we have yet to visit, and have also found some of them difficult to locate, but my excuse is that we have only been coming to the island for about 10 years!

I love my PEI mussels and oysters. I had my first ones at age 6 when we were stationed there (my father was an RCAF officer). So we will definitely make sure to get to Mark's Place on our next visit and find out when they will be getting a shipment.

I do enjoy your trip reports, but please don't let anyone make you feel guilty about not posting, even if suggested nicely or gently. You're not a paid travel writer. You're on vacation! Just enjoy yourself, and if the urge to let us in a bit by posting a report hits you, know that we will enjoy it. You write very engagingly.

Your day sounded like a very enjoyable, laid-back, idyllic day. We often enjoy those types of days while on the island, too. Thanks for sharing.

It's always good to laugh, and good to know that you guys don't "know it all", after all these years!

Happy Easter! Knowing you, and the huge Easter crowds, I figure you may not even leave BSV!! Enjoy!!
