Have you had one of those days?

Before I get into my story...Did I tell you about my new camera, if not, I'll get into that another day...right now I'll tell you, this squirrel was soooo far away. My camera has a built in 26X zoom. I was in the car...I cant believe how clear he turned out. Next time I'll take one regular photo so you can see the distance.
Now for my story...We had plans to take my husband to Sarduccis in San Jaun Capastrano, for brunch. The place was packet, the wait was going to be 45 min. AND they only had a brunch menu. So, we got in the car and drove to Dana Point, tried out a Mexican Food place, we even sat at the bar..and waited and waited, completely ignored, (asked a customer next to us how she like what she ordered, she said, usually its really good, but not today) no surprise, we got up and left, We found an Italian place, just a few people were in there, he asked if we had reservations (no) he put us out on the patio. and left us there, no menu, no water....we got up and left. We walked across the street to the Harbor, found a place, out in the sun, next to the beautiful bay, lots of people enjoying the sunshine...had the BEST mahi mahi fish and chips I have ever had...It turned out fabulous. We walked around looking at all the little shops, there was an "art walk" that was fun to view.
Our day turned out to be fabulous!!

While walking around I came across this...funniest thing! Look how he attached his surf board to his bike

Glad to know I'm not the only one who photographs squirrels, LOL!
That was some Father's Day, but I'm glad it all worked out in the end. My daughter took her father and me out on Friday night, and we really enjoyed ourselves.
I avoid restaurants like the plague on holidays! Even so, there's no excuse for you guys being ignored so much--I don't care how busy a place gets!

Sweet squirrel, sad food stories, but yeah, a happy ending! Silly looking contraption for the bike, but I guess it works!

I guess that goes to show All's well that ends well!! :)

Oh that surfer must have taken lessons here. How about a 10 foot ladder tool box and boom box with 2 2foot speakers!!! It gives all new meaning to ingenuity!!
