Sunday Nov 12th –
After one of the most sleepless ‘sleeps’ ever, I arose at 3:00 am and got ready to leave for the airport not long after.
My brother drove us and once we arrived, we were greeted by an overflowing little airport and longer lines than we’d seen there for sometime but we made it through without a hitch and were off to Vancouver by 7:00 ish.
A fall strewn province greeted us there, (along with a friend of Mikes who was kind enough to chauffeur us for the day) the red and orange trees, green grass and rainy weather, taking us back in time to where it was early fall 💁🏻
We went to Tim Hortons for a bite to eat before heading to church, having almost the entire day to spend out and about, before we needed to be back at the airport.
Surprisingly, the tiredness hadn’t kicked in yet, so I stayed much more awake during the service than I’d expected of myself 😜
After service, a few familiar, if not slightly older, faces were seen and we chatted our way through the crowd, as one does when accompanying Mike 😏
Lunch was at Aka Sushi.
Our ride was supposedly a large sushi fan and I’m glad Mike remembered that we had hoped to try sushi someday when we could be with someone who knows what they are ordering, so the first experience could be a good one 😉
And it was that indeed!
We started with some fried dumpling like things with shredded pork and it told of good things to come 👌🏻
A warm, teriyaki chicken and rice dish was our main, with tuna and dynamite rolls for our truly sushi bits 😉
I liked the tuna much more than I thought I would and the dynamite rolls were crab and fried shrimp and very tasty.
