Picked up some Phillips Hop Circle IPA on the way home from our walk yesterday. I was actually napping when Paul called; we got Phyllis’ letter to the post office, and walked, and I deposited a cheque, and returned home to get some spaghetti into us and watch our Tuesday TV.
And oh, the walk. I have NEVER seen so many wild seals at once. At one point, directly in front of the discovery centre, there were five seals, all facing into the stream, and quite close to shore. We also saw the N American variant of the Common Merganser, a breeding pair of them, and heard their bizarre call at least once (I had to look it up to confirm) and we saw another breeding pair of ducks which were much smaller and which I could not for the life of me identify.
I got some video of them but damn they were far away.
We also saw a real range of dogs including the world’s oldest and mellowest pit bull, who sweetly accepted a pat. Paul insisted on buying me gelato, so I insisted that he buy the lime mojito (So Tart, and the mint flavour at the finish, So Divine) and I got Pannacotta, which is wimpy of me I know.
