Diane felt a lot better after her nap and we decided to head into town for dinner. We parked in the center of town and decided to walk up the street parallel to the town harbor. After looking at a few menu’s posted on various restaurant, we decided on a place called “Vista” because it had a few awards posted on building and it also had some chicken and beef ...
