Signs, Signs #94

Old town Eureka retains much of its Victorian architecture. It boasts of many shops and restaurants. I was particularly enamored with its antique shops where I browsed but did not buy.

I photographed plaques describing the buildings.

Photo Hunt #214: Pet Portrait/Upper

Our pets like to soak up the sun and in the early afternoon, the stairs get a lot of sun. That is where we found them enjoying the sun when we got back from grocery shopping.

Buster (orange) likes to greet us at the door like a dog, but Emma (gray tuxie) would feign indifference.

While Buster went one step lower, Emma remained in the upper landing/rung to continue soaking up the sun.

High Five
The reason why Buster went one rung lower? To give catpapa a high five or high four for getting his favorite noms.

I’ve never stayed in a B&B that is why when we travel I am always on a lookout for one.

Photo Hunt #213: Food/Miniscule

When I first started cruising in 2006 I believe it is, the thing that bothered me about cruising is that I will end up overeating. Seven whole days of pigging out is not good.

As the years went on, I noticed that the cruises are taking more and more into consideration the health and well-being of their guests onboard. They make sure that you are aware of their gym facilities, the walking/running path, and other outdoor sports equipments.

However, the best place I see of this changes for the better is on the food they serve. They have specialty restaurants that cater to the light and healthy diner. Also the food they serve on the main dining rooms have changed significantly in the portion sizes they give. I was always aware of the wastefulness in cruise.

The Vietnamese spring roll appetizer is miniscule. Just the right portion size don’t you think?

lumix 024
The fried calamari is equally portioned right.

lumix 025
Steak and fries with mushrooms. Just enough.

lumix 086
The dessert is significantly smaller in portion but the hubs and I still split it between us.
