Another early morning….we took the homeowners to the airport at 5:00 AM. They are spending 10 days in Yucatan, Mexico while we take care of their dog and home.
Our dog, Dundee, requires quite a bit of walking due to a leg injury from when he was a puppy. If he doesn’t walk, his leg gets stiff. So, we took several walks today. First was to the local grocery store in the village. It is so nice to be able to walk to most places.
Lunch at home, using up the homeowners’ delicious pumpkin soup, and a baguette from the French bakery in town.
Afterwards, Dundee took a nap….
and so did master George….
George did some research about breweries in the area…….There are tons! We drove to nearby Ballard, where there are 11 breweries within a one-mile radius. We found a cute nautical pub with good happy hour prices. George had a Christmas ale, and I had an IPA called a ship-show. (Try saying that fast!)
Then, another long walk around the neighborhood. As we were walking along the bluff, this hang-glider dropped down near us…
We could see the Olympian Mountains across the bay and lots of ferries going to and from Bainbridge Island.
For dinner, we walked down to the village to a new sushi bar. Quite good and very popular! We shared a sushi platter and some warming miso soup.
