Where did the week go?

We boarded the MS ChiCheemaun for a day trip on Friday. We spent the day in Tobermory, walked about, went shopping and sightseeing, and had a meal over there. Tobermory is such a delightful little place. It's just so quaint and inviting.

Here's a pic of the gang lounging on the deck, enjoying the sunshine and fresh air. Ren and Sharmander - Remember that famous scene from Titanic? LOL!

The girls- Hamming it up for the camera.

We went to Shipwreck Lee's for their "All You Can Eat Fish and Chips". Actually, only the boys had all you can eat fish and chips. The girls couldn't stomach that much fish and chips. We opted for the shrimp and fish dish on the lighter side. The "lighter side" wasn't that light either! The portions were quite generous and everything tasted delicious. It's not often we eat fried food! (Thank goodness!) We enjoyed our meal immensely, but I think I've had my fill of seafood for a while!
British Lion and Ren enjoying their meal. In this photo, the two were on their third piece of fish. Look at the expression on Ren's face :)

This next photo is quite telling, don't you think? LOL!

Just another gorgeous day!

British Lion and my student enjoying a drink at the pub.

The love birds. Aren't they cute? I love this couple!
Ending the busy day at home--Chillin' with the kitties. Trouble and Spike just love British Lion.

More photos and updates to come soon.

I don't know much about Tobermory other than I've heard it's beautiful and a great spot for diving. And now I know it's also a great spot to get stuffed with fish and chips - my all time fave pub food, but I don't think I could polish all that off (and you know me by now, I have a huge appetite!).
It looks like you had such a wonderful time - you're all so cute, and British lion looks oh so comfy with the kitties!
Thanks again for the great photo essay!

When I come to visit you and your hubby, can we go diving in Tobermory? Is it only in the summer time that you can dive there?
