... a great little bakery where M&L scoffed down a couple of huge slices of chocolate cake, myself and Les who are of course super health freaks (Our body's are our temple's) opted to only have a small single chocolate each.
Finished the day with a couple of beers in a sports bar where the Marshmeiers thrashed the Sachs at darts. I believe we have identified their weakness for all bar related activities. Dinner was had ...
