Happy Tuesday ladies. I am glad to be back for this anniversary T Day party as I was out of town last week. My husband and myself had gone north to Canada and it was nice to be staying in a place where we had some new restaurants to try for food.
Be sure to visit Bleubeard and Elizabeth's blog to link up your drink related post at this 5 year celebration party!
One night we went to this east coast of Canada restaurant chain called Jungle Jim's. One thing about staying in a small rural population area is that there are limited places to eat. I think in the week we were in Canada we tried all of the restaurants in town for our evening dinner, and a couple of them we ate at more than once.
I thought Jungle Jim's looked like a festive choice to share on this anniversary T Day.
I had a taco salad to eat, and to drink I had this very festive glass of sangria. There were strawberries, raspberries and this orange slice in my drink.
The taco salad was good but the restaurant didn't have guacamole. For me, a taco salad just isn't complete without it. (Hee-hee). I think the sangria was pretty good though.
And how about a few more photos from my trip.
I have a special anniversary treat for our hostess Elizabeth today. This is one of her favorite things. I thought of her even when I took these photos.
Lots of rusty bits from a shipwreck on the Newfoundland coast, the S.S.Ethie which went down in 1919. They are pretty cool.
After we wrapped up for the day my husband looked up the story of the S.S.Ethie on his iPad. No one died in this shipwreck as the lighthouse keeper from the Lobster Head Lighthouse and the surrounding community helped rescue them. There were a few women on board and even a baby on board. The baby was put into a mailbag to keep her dry and secure as she was brought ashore.
And then a couple of days later we visited this very pretty lighthouse at Lobster Head. The inside was set up as a museum to show what life was like for the 2 generations of a family that manned it.
While I was checking out another exhibit my husband came over to me all excited and told me I had to see this exhibit.
It was the mailbag that the baby from the S.S. Ethie was rescued in. You can see my husband's head shadow in this photo with his hat on.
And here's the view from the lighthouse.
This photo was taken on a gorgeous morning. My morning ambition today has quickly dwindled with the dark skies here today. We are suppose to get some nasty storms and maybe this humidity will break.
Hope it is a gorgeous day wherever you happen to be.
Happy T day and thanks so much for visiting.
