The Copper Kettle in Regina

Well, I was on my own for supper tonight, so decided to walk across the street to the "Copper Kettle" restaurant. I ordered the Spinach Roll, don't bother with the salad, and a 1/2 litre of E&J Sauvignon Blanc. The "Spinach Roll" was actually a chicken breast, stuffed with spinach and Feta cheese, and covered with a creamy tomato and mushroom sauce. The chicken itself was a bit overdone, but other than that, the meal was quite good. Now, I'm no wine expert, but I like to try enjoying my wine for the bouquet and flavour, rather than just for the slight buzz.




As I write this, we're currently in Regina doing a shoot for Sasktel Max Local on Demand.

Day 9 - Epilogue

Day 9

I don't even want to write this page. What is there to say?

Day 8 - Denouement

Day 8

This morning, Kim, Shayne and the gang left for a day on Isla de las Shivas. My daughter and I went for a walk on the beach. the waves were a bit too rough to really play in the ocean, so we stayed right on the edge and collected seashells that were being washed ashore.

Day 7 - On Top of the World

Day 7

Well rested from a relaxing day on day 6, today we were ready to overexert ourselves again. We started out in the morning for the lighthouse hill.

Day 6 - Recovering

Day 6

Well, I got a bit tomo mucho sol (the giant fireball in the sky, not the cervesa) on Stone Island on Day 5, so I took it a bit easier on Day 6. We spent the morning just hanging around the house. In the early afternoon, my daughter and I started out on another trek. I wanted to take her to Seashell City, which would mean our first trek into the Golden Zone. (The tourist area of Mazatlan)

Day 5 - Sun and Surf

Day 5

Today we spent the day on the beach on Stone Island. Stone Island isn't actually an island. It's a peninsula. But the road to drive there is long and treacherous, so most people simply take a boat.

The first time we went there, years ago, we paid $40US each for a harbour cruise with a stop on Stone Island. Since then, we have discovered the boats that the locals take to and from. At $15 pesos, it's not quite as luxurious, but it gets us there just the same.
