There is a great old wharf with a good seafood restaurant at the end. The open-air bar upstairs was filled with live music, dancing, and good food. The sun was shining; the water glistened. The call of seagulls filled the air. The salty sweet fragrance of ocean and flowers tantalized.
The village area is book ended by two hillsides. To the north, where Gary and Phaa live, is the Jewel district. Predictably, the streets here are named after jewels. Gary and Phaa live on Jade Street. To the south is the historic Victorian area filled with grand old ladies and the occasional non-Victorian designs. All are lovingly cared for.
and hit the shops in the village. Wisely, we let the men go off with all the cash and plastic. Of course this was the day I found the perfect Christmas gift for my brother (I’ll have it shipped) and a $2.00 Dooney & Burke purse in a thrift shop. ** sigh**
