Say hello to my new friend!
How cute is Babe? I knew we would be friends immediately when I saw that his name matched one of my all-time favorite movies.
He said “Hi” to us and everything. Such a talented little guy.
We saw Babe outside of Jerry’s, a local grocery store on the island. Jerry’s is located in a shopping plaza and cages with a bunch of exotic birds are scattered among the stores. The birds are quite interactive and one macaw even made us scream when it squawked surprisingly loudly after being very quiet for everyone for the longest time.
I then decided that if I were a parrot forced to live my life in a cage, I’d spend my days messing with people, too. I’m sure watching people jump and freak out is a lot more entertaining than watching people say, “hello” to you 20 times in a row.
We headed to Jerry’s after lunch to pick up food for dinner. Naturally our minds turned to our next meal immediately after eating our first.
The Island Cow
Lunch today was great! A bunch of you guys recommended The Island Cow and we followed your suggestions and were seated at a booth inside of the eclectic restaurant.
We got a pretty big kick out of the cow-themed décor and especially loved this sign:
We each had one of their muffins to start that actually tasted like funfetti cake with cranberries!
I wasn’t too hungry because I visited the continental breakfast at the condo after eating my own breakfast, so I stuck with a salad topped with fruit, veggies, blackened scallops and shrimp.
I cleared my plate and also shared some of the marinara mussels and buttery garlic bread that my mom ordered.
It was great! If we go back before we leave, I’m ordering the mussels.
While out and about on the island, we also stopped by The Bubble Room gift shop (we’ll be returning for their famous dessert tomorrow) and had a good time playing around with the trinkets and silly hats.
(I picked the pig hat in honor of Sadie’s love for pigs. )
When we arrived back at the condo, we headed out to the pool where I spent some time reading and relaxing before going on another long beach walk with my sister.
And then it was dinnertime!
I was in charge of dinner tonight and made broiled salmon, roasted curried cauliflower and roasted Brussels sprouts… served with pita chips just ‘cuz they’re delicious.
Time for dessert!
