It would have been great to watch the sea lions through the glass floor, but there were none that day, sigh. Ah well, the food was delicious - bourbon glazed wild salmon and pan sauteed Petrale sole - beer was decent (I'm not a connoisseur), wait staff pleasant and the views through the huge windows was phenomenal.
After lunch we strolled along the waterfront, dodging the trolley tracks heading for Frites and Scoop, a Belgian frites and small batch ice cream shop (don't ask me, I have no idea how these two things go together, I just know the ice cream is DIVINE). Along the way there are a number of nice placards telling us about the waterfront's history and people.
Lots of interesting things to see, if you like things having to do with water, and we do.
Closed! The Frites and Scoop was CLOSED! My mouth was watering the entire walk for a scoop of Espresso/Cardamom or Bob or Calabrian Chili Chocolate or Lemon Lavender, or Licorice or Pretzel Crunch, or Dirty Vanilla or Spiked Egg Nog or Bourbon Butterscotch or Pretzel Stout or Blackberry Cobbler or or or or...... Ah well, a diet day then.
We continued our walk along the water, sans ice cream.

We were home early enough to play a little ball (inside and out) with the Lewis before a light supper.
Today, Thursday, we met Paul at Fort George Brewery for lunch before returning to Lewis and Clark RV and Golf Resort.
