I never realized how funny these dinosaurs look! They’ve got this wide-eyed, bewildered look (I think the snow’s had its toll on them).
I have to say that I was pretty fearful walking down the hill. It wasn’t particularly icy but it sure did look it.
We ducked into a side restaurant called Beef Baron for a early dinner.
I admit that the bread/biscuit appetizers are one of my favourite parts of eating at restaurants.
We started with spinach and artichoke dip and it was pretty good! The chips were light, almost like crisped wonton wrappers (my only complaint was that the chips were a tad salty).
Our main course was lobster fettuccine and sadly it was disappointing because the lobster was a little dry and the whole dish itself was flavourless. It’s okay, though. Excitement from being on this trip made it better. All in all I have to say that dark, atmospheric restaurants are not really my thing.
We then decided to hit the hill again for some night time scenery. Thank God the weather was docile that night.
We started the next day at Denny’s with a milkshake.
And coffee, of course.
And then another trip to Starbucks for MORE coffee (I had the maple macchiato… it tasted exactly like caramel, haha). I also cannot rave about this small back pack enough! I was a little hesitant to take it along because I thought the colours were lame but I’m so glad I did. It’s big enough to fit my camera, another lense, my iPad, and various knick knacks yet not tooooo big. I LOVE it.
We had our last meal at Red Lobster. While not as fancy as other restaurants, the disappointing lobster from the Beef Baron had us craving better seafood. Obviously I had to take a selfie with the lobster headrest.
We had the lobster artichoke dip and it was SO GOOD, as was the rest of the meal. I had the rock island stuffed tilapia with a side of rice and beans which was filling and savoury, and le boyf had the lobster lover’s dream (two yummy tails and a little seafood linguine).
It was so good I forgot to take more photos.
That’s it for part two! I apologize for the quality of the last few photos… I used my iPhone camera 🙂 Stay tuned for Part Three tomorrow!
