There are so MANY things within walking distance of our hotel.
This a.m. we walked to BK for "brunch". Walked to Office Depot for a power cord. Walked to Barnes and Nobel for...well... we DID have a suitcase of books stolen.
Then walked back to the hotel and swam. Did I mention it is 102* today?
This evening we walked to a Japanese Steakhouse! and had dinner with my 4 cousins, their children and grand children. What a treat! Our chef was full of helpful advice when we told him we were moving to Misawa. He said that this sort of food would be very expensive in Japan and to enjoy now. It wasn't terribly cheap here. ::snort:: He asked if we'd like to try Chicken Sushi. ::snort::
I got tired of flinging salad around the table and working diligently for one grain of rice....and asked for some kiddy chopsticks. This was a source of great fun, but I was able to eat my meal with chopsticks. ::snort::
Zander was enthralled with the antics of the chef.
He shot a shrimp into Jared's mouth. ::snort::
My cousin Launnie kept Zander entertained with spinning coins.
After dinner we walked to Target for a few things. We bought bread to feed the ducks in the pond behind the hotel....but it was too dark to do that tonight. We'll try tomorrow.
The kids did get bored with the walking and staying in a hotel room. In fact, Jared, decided to ride the elevators up and down and listen to conversations. Hmmm....if he ever DOES run for President someone from today is sure to come forward with the story. ::snort::
I've decided rather than riding the bus alone to get our passports, we'll all go. I have a map and a bus schedule. I think I can get us downtown and to a few tourist spots. We'll stay away from bookstores...but there IS a great mystery bookstore that I spotted in Pioneer Square.
Walking back to the hotel from dinner, Arielle spotted Borders. Can you believe it? Three big bookstores within walking distance of the hotel. I didn't even PLAN it that way. ::snort::
