I think Dad could get used to a cooked breakfast! Again he was treated to scrambled eggs and bacon as we all enjoyed a tasty, hearty breakfast. As forecast, the weather was a bit overcast but still lovely and warm.
We headed down the hill to the local Somerset post office o arrange travel passes for the rest of our stay. It actually worked out better value to purchase montly ones...if only!
We then caught the bus to the Naval Dockyard and took the short journey there. As there were no cruise ships in the dock, it was fairly quiet when we got there. We enjoyed looking around the shops and especially the local craftsmen at work. The glassblowing was really interesting to watch and there was some excellent local artwork available to purchase.
We had some bar snacks (delicious onion rings and mac 'n' cheese balls) at the Frog and Onion pub. We then headed back to the frozen yogurt shop to introduce Dad to the delights of a frozen mango yogurt.
We caught the bus back to our apartment and while Dad chilled out on the balcony, Grant and I headed to the supermarket to stock up on food. It's always such fun looking at the different goodies to buy overseas and as usual, we enjoyed selecting some things we can't buy back in the UK.
When we returned back to the apartment we quickly got changed and caught the 6pm commuter ferry over to Hamilton. We had a delicious Japanese meal in 'Pearl' where the cocktails and food were all superb. Dad has a raspberry based cocktail which was delicious and our sushi was excellent.
We decided to get coffees and a coconut cream pie in Flannigans bar just along the street. Even though there was a bit of rain we managed to sit outside under a canopy and enjoy the views from the terrace.
We caught the 9:20 bus back to our apartment and as the bus driver obviously wanted to get home quickly too, it seemed to take no time at all!
