    Greetings!

    Grizz and I have returned from a three day stay in Boston. We had a nice time despite the fact that the weather was not great, and the hotel where we stayed did not have Wi-Fi the first two days of our stay.

    After our breakfast this morning, we heard this song on the radio on our way back to the hotel. I have not heard it in a dog’s age! What a beautiful song, and a lovely performance…

    RIO! We seem to have similar tastes in books. I have “Falling” on my To Be Read list on my Nook. :^)

    Good evening to all!

    Rose!…Be sure to start that book when you have no plans to do anything or go anywhere because your furry little paws will not
    be able to put it down once you start!…snort!snort!…If you can let me know how you are feeling when you are reading the book without giving away SPOILERS of course…wheeze!…Maybe SDD would be a better route for all that…snorkel!

    Starting reading The Right Side during dinner tonight.

    I drove 45 min. up the coast to go to the Master Gardener’s fall garden walk. I’ve done several garden walks in San Diego and I really wasn’t that impressed with this one. To add to it I wasted 20 min. trying to get from the second house to a whole cluster of them in the area and my route guidance kept sending me to a street that was closed off by a locked gate. I finally went back to the start and tried from there successfully. But that wasted time. I skipped four houses so I could make it to the demonstration garden and plant sale before 4pm. I had 35 min. to make a 10 min. drive. But the route guidance for the address kept putting me at the Carlsbad outlet mall. I finally drove the entire length behind the mall and found it but by then it was 3:52 and they had packed up all of the stuff for sale. I was able to wander around for a few minutes and get some photos but all in all, I was a bit disappointed in the day, not only for the lack of directions and incomplete addresses (street, place, circle, east?) but also poorly designed route. They didn’t really take into consideration people who were unfamiliar with the area and relying on the car navigation to find the next garden. The gardens themselves weren’t that impressive either. A few were very nice. But to me they weren’t up to the standards of Point Loma or Mission Hills or in some cases even Clairemont.

    However after it was over I drove across the road to the King’s Fish House and had a really nice (and expensive) meal. It was actually the highlight of the day. Nice large shrimp with a really good red cocktail sauce, pan seared scallops with sides of spinach and the house mac n cheese and for dessert, a creme brulée with the thickest, crunchiest top. I hadn’t eaten all day so it was nice to have a sit down dinner. Good thing I got there early as after I was done, as I was leaving, there were people sitting outside waiting to get in. The place must do a booming business, even at those prices.

    Since I was dining alone I decided to start reading The Right Side on my iPhone. I’ll switch to my iPad at home but won’t be reading it before bed. Screens dontcha know.
