today's finds

We got a lovely, leisurely start today, the hotel-provided breakfast was nice. Especially because we didn't pay extra for it, and we didn't have to work to prepare it. We went to a bookstore called Murder By The Book, and scored both new and used books. Not too many, but still fun. Next door was a little coffee place. Not a starbucks kind of thing, but where they sold mugs, and gourmet kind of coffeemakers, and lovely beans. And yes, of course, we got a little. The lady in the shop recommended the Tanzania Peaberry as her favorite, so, that's what we got. I'll let you know how it is.

Next on the list were two gaming stores. After a few traffic flow issues, we got to the first, which was mostly miniatures. The other was a combination game and comic book store, along with a LOT of geek-a-licious paraphenalia. I scored a little Vulcan beanie-guy. Dev, I got their card because they had a some Nightmare and Corpse Bride stuff that you would be seriously interested in, AND carried a line of goth dolls I thought you would like, too. REALLY!

So, after that, we went to Kenny & Ziggy's new york style delicatessen restaurant. Pricey, but OhMyGoodness! For a picture of what we were eating, check out Carl's facebook post. I packed the half of the sandwich on that plate to take home. I also got a slice of cheesecake to take home for Ron. Then, wouldn't you know it, I walked aff and left them at the cashregister when we walked out. DOH! A call to the deli when we realized was made, and they allowed as how they could put my package in the fridge and we could get it tomorrow. ARGH!

Later in the afternoon, we made it to the airport to pick up Ron, and he finally got to meet some of my Mom's side of the family... and they got to meet him. We on for lunch with a couple of the cousins, near the water, yay. It seems like it will be a good day.

What a grand-sounding day! And you got to go to Murder by the Book! Way cool! If you drop in again, say hi to them from us!
