Sorry I crawled into bed immediately and was out!
I had quite a quiet day and so managed to finish another book.
No Other Duke Will Do is the last book in the Wyndham Brides quartet for me. I have really enjoyed this series as the women are strong and independent. The whole series also has a very strong family presence. I do find the latitude taken with history bugs me a bit, but that’s probably only because I was a history major. This particular book, I also found the hero lovely, but a little unbelievable. I can’t quite believe he hadn’t come up with the solution himself!
I would still recommend the series for anyone who enjoys historical romance.
I did work away some at my rug squatters as well. I’m not halfway though so a little nervous about falling behind!
I had promised my co teacher I would make the curtains for her, but I didn’t get to start yesterday. I actually went and did some measurements though so I’ll be able to start this morning!
My big event for the day was going back downtown to meet up with a friend. We went for a big walk along the seawall-about 11km. It was the perfect day for it as it wasn’t super hot and there was a lovely breeze!
Then we walked through the city trying to find dinner. I wanted to go back to Meet as it was relatively close, but after walking 3km we got there just to see that it was closed for an event:(
We ended up at Tacofino which was fine with me as their food is good. We thought the wait might be interminable, but just as we were thinking of going elsewhere we got called. Ten minutes isn’t bad. I just asked the server what I could have and ended up with one of these tacos.
It was a lamb barria taco. It was a really good taco- good flavor and spice! I was laughing at myself as I had just been telling my friend that I keep eating Mexican but am yet to have the guacamole and chips that I’m really craving! The server didn’t mention them as an option so I went with the lamb.
We had to walk back through the city anyways so decided to stop at another Meet location for dessert.
I had the lemon tart which I think may have been the same thing I had last time too! At least now I’ve written it here so hopefully I’ll have something different next time!
It was an absolutely great afternoon with my friend! Our seawall walk has become a bit of a tradition for us. I did feel bad though as her foot started to hurt:(. I think I’m really going to have to do my full seawall walk on my own as when I’m with someone and they get tired or start hurting, I feel really bad!!!😢😞
The drive home took forever because of the construction detour and then there was also a bad accident. I would still say it was worth it!
