When the family came home we drove down to a famous fish and chip restaurant Ches’s where I indulged myself it was great company, and great food…..and I even got a certificate for eating there as a first time guest!!!!

That is Kirsten next to Rick and then Ashley…both great young ladies!!!

After supper the girls went off in one vehicle to look at dresses and Rick took me on a tour of the lesser seen sights of St.John’ s very interesting we saw some really old and small houses…back at the house Robert was over and he gave me some Moose in a bottle…it really is moose preserved in a bottle ready for me to eat.

 

I want to thank Jude and Rick they have been awesome hosts so kind to me sharing their home , their family and their lives…..thank you!!

I leave you with one of Rick’s good lines tonight…he told me to watch out tomorrow the weather is changing it is going to be 20 degrees…….10 in the morning and 10 in the afternoon!!!!

So I leave in the morning and hope to tour most of the Island starting out here..
