I've had an awesome couple of days. Myself and my mom (who will be 87 years old on August 24!!) drove to the city to spend a couple of nights with my daughter, Rana. Three generations---cool ;o)
I picked Mom up right after she got home from church on Sunday, and we set out on on three hour journey. Mom loves to be on the go, still drives her own car and is very active. The weather was beautiful, and all along the way we both commented as we passed many signs of little towns and communities that neither of us had ever been to many of them. I suggested the next sign we come upon, if it wasn't too far off the beaten trail, we would drive down. Mom was all for that!! It was a bonus that one of the things on my "summer bucket list" is to visit a place that I had never been.
The first sign we came upon after that was for Little Harbor East---neither of us had ever been there, so we agreed ..."No time like the present". We turned off the TCH and drove about 12-15 kilometers. We were starting to get a little worried when we saw houses off in the distance. Wow, what a beautiful little spot. Right on the water with a little wharf and stages scattered here and there along the rocky shoreline. It was picture postcard perfection........

As you can very well see....we were not disappointed with this short detour.
We continued our little journey and got to Rana & Mark's about 5 pm. Mark barbequed a variety of sinful goodies for our supper, with sides of fresh sauteed shrimp and fried squid. Rana did an awesome veggie dish of baked asparagus, cucumber, fresh mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, and shredded carrots, drizzled with olive oil and balsamic vinegar....Yummy!!! We were all too full for dessert or even coffee......so later that night, to top off the day, us three girls went to Moo Moo's for ice-cream.

|Rana decided on chicken fajitas...yummm!!|
|Mom decided on beef ribs...we thought--it turned out to be a huge beef rib, but cooked to tender perfection!!|
