    glad your day was excellent.
    Bingo has OUTSTANDING coconut shrimp.

    a few times over the yeas we have stopped at Wendys for their frosty....then we add a few oz of Baileys or Kahlua....a very nice lunch
    the drive thru line is always long.

After that, we went to the Wendy's by the new roundabout for lunch. Hubs has been wondering every trip we've taken here why Wendy's is so popular here. We have it at home, of course, but it's never as busy as the ones here. So, we decided to try it out. It's exactly the same as at home but with some local options not available in the US. And that completed our trip to Wendy's. Lol. We came back to the Airbnb and he watched more cricket while I swam a bit. He's a cricket fiend now. What the heck?? I finally made him turn it off and we went for another drive. Ended up by the Moomba area and decided on Nos Clubhuis for happy hour drinks and some appetizers. That was fun! Sat there until after sunset then decided we wanted dessert somewhere. We saw Cafe Bingo on our way back to the Airbnb and decided to stop since we've never been. It was outstanding! I had an espresso martini and then a butterscotch martini, along with the apple cobbler a la mode with cinnamon ice cream. I want to bathe in the crumble that was on that cobbler!! Hubs got another appetizer and then the cream puffs. We decided we liked it so much that we are going to have dinner there tomorrow night. It will be our last night here and also happens to be hubs' birthday tomorrow, so why not?! Lucky duck gets to spend it in Aruba every year! Anyway, was a great day and more than made up for yesterday's weirdness. One more full day and then we start the packing for home tomorrow night. *sigh*
    THINK.. is it Thoughtful? Helpful? Inspirational? Necessary? Kind? sidtm

    Thanks for the tip about the coconut shrimp! And great call on the Frosty additions! We may hafta do that at home! The long lines is why hubs has wondered what is the deal. We never see lines like that at Wendy's at home - even at the very first one in Columbus!

    So glad yesterday was a great day and evening for you both! It sounds like a lot of fun! I too have wondered why Wendys was always so busy..... Dinner tonight sounds perfect for your last evening - I'll have to try that restaurant next time and it looks super nice outside. Enjoy your last full day girlfriend and tell Scott Happy Birthday!!!!

    I want to grow my own food, but I can't find any bacon seeds...

    Our time here has come to the end. *sad face* Last day was faboo. Went to Linda's for breakfast, went snorkeling at Boca Catalina (much better today!), went to Arashi one last time, swam a bit at the Airbnb pool, watched the sunset at Malmok and went to dinner at Cafe Bingo (AndreaJ - we had the coconut shrimp and rhey were to die for!!). Our Airbnb host had a piece of cake from Superfoods and a card waiting for hubs this morning and the staff at Bingo sang happy birthday to him and had a candle in his cream puffs. Lol. It was a fantastic last day here. We are packed as much as we can pack and will be trying to meet up with some friends from home who are on a cruise that docks here tomorrow morning. We're hoping to have enough time at West Deck with them before we have to turn in the rental car and head to the airport.

    Thanks to everyone that followed our goofy adventures these past two weeks. Until next time...!
