but I think I enjoy The Old Triangle better.
Last evening however we had a great gastronomic experience as we met up with the city daughter and son-in-law and had supper at a Koren BBQ spot called e-pin whish was delicious. Here is the review from The Coast:

This morning after a breakfast of pineapple pancakes (devine) and ham mister headed off to the conference room and within a few minutes I got a frantic phone call from the plant secretary on my phone telling me that the cleaning lady had found the door to our house wide open this morning when she arrived to work her magic. I phoned the house and spoke to her ascertaining the cats were still inside (it necessitated me describing the location of the kitty treats) that it was only 54 degrees F so she should get her extra sweater from the car as it was going to take a while to heat up and I was very grateful that she had been scheduled to come this morning or we might have had frozen pipes with the recent temperatures. Needless to say both of the men in my life have denied going out through the front door but I clearly recall the shore captain exiting with the luggage as we left.
Following this I read the paper, ambled over to the mall and found extremely good bargains on two tops and a shrug for formal night on the cruise all for only $24 so a very good sale. Always need to check out different Dollaramas and was not disappointed. A stop at the drugstore for biodegradeable sunscreen as I read online this is required for several snorkeling sites in Mexico. It appears we'll be buying it there if so as in Canada all the lotions included chemicals on the forbidden for biodegradeable label. I window shopped at the bookstore but it's difficult to make yourself buy a paper copy when you have an e-book reader. I stopped at a place in the food court and got a banana/pineapple/mango smoothie and a panini of black forest ham and swiss cheese panini on whole grain ciabatta. Yum. Back to the hotel to do a few laps of the pool and soak in the hot tub, both of which I had completely to myself. So, all in all a great 'me day'.
Although nasty weather is prediced tonight, tomorrow a friend is heading over to meet for lunch and after the meetings wrap here the travel partner and myself and the daughter and son-in-law are snorkel gear shopping. So another good day off. There is discussion that we shall be driving a new to her vehicle home which the baby daughter recently purchased here in the city but some confusion re: license plate etc.
I should be making my way home tomorrow as the 'real world' is threatening to intrude as I have gotten several emails about the online Emergency Nursing Program I am beginning shortly. The parcel at the post office is likely my special headset for the Elluminate orientation session. It all promises to eat up the few minutes of time I have.
Ah, if I were retired I'd only be concerned about which travel sites I was reading, such as these two:
I particularly liked the piece about Trip Advisor as I've just recently been researching places to stay in Fort Lauderdale. The final decision is that we should be able to stay for about $80 per night with breakfast and a shuttle to airport and cruiseport which will leave some funds for looking at alligators.
