This is a photo of one of the restaurants when we went down south last summer. We have never eaten there but have walked down to see the boats tied up. Occasionally a boat will come in and we watch them drag it out of the water onto a special flat-bed usually hooked up to a truck. It's interesting to see the process for non-boat people like us.
Son came over on his day off and helped his dad cart down an old desk out of his old bedroom from when he lived here, years ago now. We had breakfast together, caught up on his week as we usually do and it was a fun get-together as it usually is. I might be prejudiced but he is fun to talk to, is a wonderful conversationalist and has a great sense of humor. His visits are a tonic. Next time we get together we're hoping we can go out as a foursome. Because of his work hours he often has a day off when his sweet wife is working, so when we all do get together it is always a treat.
And talking about sweeties, my niece in Germany called. We often have lovely chats thanks to Facetime. Always bless this wonderful technology when we can talk face to face, next best thing to being in the same room and hard to imagine all the miles between us. Our niece also has a great sense of humor, is a wonderful conversationalist and has us laughing many times. An hour-and-a-half can go by fast. We are sowing the seeds for getting together again. Can't be too soon for me.
Yesterday we met up with a friend and had lunch. A restaurant I found on a blog and as it was in the same town as our friend, I suggested we go there. I'll tell you more on Monday when I share photos of the meal. It involved a lovely drive through the prettiest countryside to pick up our friend, a short trip to the restaurant and after our meal a cup of tea at our friend's house, and then another nice trip home. Even though it was during rush hour we were driving against traffic and it was smooth sailing. Put my feet up once we got home and took a nap!
One exciting trip to the dump to take said desk mentioned in my second paragraph, and filled the van up to the gills with items we couldn't give away but were recycled at the dump.
Had phone chats with other friends and there you go. That's been my week up to now. It was a good one. Hope yours has been too.
