Our weekend

Gord and I never venture away from the house much for our meals. We are vegetarian and it's not easy to find restaurants to eat here. We had heard about this one in a small village called Petit Rocher just about a half hour north of here, so we set out around 4:30 yesterday for a drive.Once there,we drove out to the wharf for  a picture. I love the rock formations.
 The name of the restaurant, Coeur D'aAishow, is a play on words. in French artichoke is l'artichaud. It is actually a bistro that has entertainment on Thursday, Friday and Saturday night, the only times it is open. It is a quaint little arty place where they have 1 or 2 things on the menu each night and it is all made from scratch. 
The waiter said they even cook their own kidney beans for the vegetarian chili. We were there at 5PM and so ordered and ate before the place filled up at 6:30 for the night. After we placed our order for tomato basil soup and a veggie pita pizza, the waiter actually sang in the middle of the restaurant. It was a beautiful song by Barry Manilow taken from a new CD of his called Paradise Cafe. We laughed about it after; we where the only English people there.The meal was wonderful though, and we left in time for the French speaking customers to fill it up for the night's entertainment.
This picture we took in Beresford when we stopped at my in laws on the way home.
Today, we decided to go golfing . We actually wore our winter undershirts and a wind jacket and were very comfortable. There was no one else around. We were able to take our time. Another advantage for this time of year is that when you hit it in the water you don't always lose your ball. We laughed when it hit the pond and stayed up on the thin ice! It looked like it was a magical floating golf ball!
 While I intended to paint again today, I'm heading off for a soak right now and will likely collapse after supper. I'm so glad to have leftover spicy coconut soup for supper!
