We had lunch at the Bounty restaurant.This was very good.
We started with a smoked fish pate.It was nice.

Mrsdrron had a glass of Sav blanc and I being on a penal colony island felt this was the appropriate drink.

In that last pic of the previous post I could here birds in the bush.I did my generic bird call and this fellow came out and posed.

We then drove down country road to the intersection with Taylor's road just outside Kingston.Evidence of an old settlement.Also evidence that the resident ducks have been well fed by tourists as just opening the car door had them heading straight for us.

But soon retreated when it was obvious we were empty handed.

So to the ruins.

The last was probably the site of a mill.This dam was constructed for that.

The dam now is used to resupply the water tankers but also as a place for ducks.

Also poultry running around.

Taylors road lined by pine trees.

Back into town.Now i thought I might try their fish and chook shop.No chooks available since march.But also the place is only open a few nights from 1730 to 1900.So no lunch.
A quick look at the hospital.

Then to the airport where you leave your rental car unlocked with the house keys inside.

Soon after lunch was served.This time I had the chicken and mrsdrron had the beef as the chicken was spicy.

Now I did mean to take a pic with the foil off but in another senior moment only took one of the nice full glass of pinot noir.

And I guess an ex VA bird waiting to disappear.

And that's all folks.I enjoyed the break.For some it would be too slow and boring but if you like nature and particularly bird watching it is fine.the history is also interesting.
