Today we went down to breakfast about 9:00. We met a young woman in the breakfast area. She took our order to cook us breakfast. I asked for an omelette, and Jean had French toast cooked to order. Nice.

The weather was on and off today, no rain, but foggy, clear up a bit, foggy, repeat. I had to be quick to take a picture before the sun disappeared.

We walked down to where we were to meet our bus for the island tour. There about 20 of us on the bus, all English speaking so our tour guide, Clementine did not have to do both languages. She had a good sense of humor as she talked about the history, culture, government, etc. Unfortunately, because of the fog, many times she had to say, "Normally, if not for the fog, you would see in the distance ..." So we missed Labador, Miquelon, Sailors island, the top of the volcano, etc. We did see anything on the island - cemetery, airport, government buildings, statues, memorials, etc. After the tour, I tipped her and told her that I had enjoyed her humor and social commentary.

Most things are closed on the island from 12:00 to 1:30, except for restaurants. So we walked the streets looking at stores, museums, statues, monuments, etc. We walked back to the hotel to rest and snack. After 1:00 we walked around the island. The sun had come out a little, so I quickly snapped some pictures. We went to the Post Office to buy some stamps to send post cards. We shopped the stores, now that they were open. Then returned to our hotel room until our 7:00 dinner at Nico's.

We left about 6:57 because the restaurant was only one block away. It was a nice little restaurant with about 10 tables (we had a reservation). I enjoyed the BBQ ribs and Jean enjoyed a steak. We shared a fruit salad for our dessert.

We returned to our room with plenty of time to watch Jeopardy (it comes on at 9:30 because of the time differences we have been through).
