Let's do lunch

To celebrate Canada Day weekend, we tried out the Waterfront Gastro Pub Sunday for lunch.
I pass this gorgeous building every day when I walk Kane.

It is only blocks from our home so we walked over and met Jess and Mike.
We sat on the patio over-looking the Mississippi River. Beautiful view; can't beat it.
We were the first ones on the patio so I snapped a few photos.
I chose 'the lonely vegetarian' which was amazing
 along with a beverage of half iced-tea and half lemonade.

 Everyone loved their meal.
The retired-guy googling the answer to a very important question. Something about which celebrity chose the same drink (half tea/half lemonade) as his favorite summer beverage. It was Arnold Palmer. He called it the Half and Half. The guy has taste.
It was nice to have these two busy people take time to 'do lunch' with us.

 I am recommending this restaurant to all my friends. Good service, too.
Mama and mama-to-be. Only two months to go so it's getting exciting. :)

Walking home we passed by this..
I'll have to ask my walking-buddy, Susan at what it's called. She's the garden whisperer. Amazing, isn't it.

Since we had to leave Kane at home over lunch I took him for a drive by the river later.
As you can see he fancies the wind in his face and the smell of the water.  Then he suckered me into getting ice-cream.

hugs, Deb


  1. Beautiful photos Deb, but I must admit that last one is the best! Kane looks like he is really enjoying the ride!

    Happy Canada Day!

    1. That's the plan. You will love the view. The food is amazing and you can walk from our place. Perfect. We also have two new stores open since you visited. Have a very Happy Canada Day. I expect you are heading in to Alexandria for the parade. Wish I could be there. Have fun.
