It was only a matter of time until I write a blog about food an beer. I chose to write about it today because that was the general theme all day. The day started off fairly normal. At this point everyday seems to blend together and routine has certainly set in. I was determined to get out early today and walk around.

... 7pm and we were exhausted and hungry after a very eventful and wonderful day. Don had learned about a highly rated vegetarian restaurant that was located on our way back to the hotel, so we decided to try it out. It was a nice place and we had a wholesome meatless meal. With tummies full and hearts content after such a great day, we made the rest of the trek home giving thanks for such a wonderful trip thus far!
