Continental breakfast. Not too shabby. Then we went back to the room and started to clean up stuff and organize for the next leg of our trip.
I think I could have organized all day long but it was better that I just got out of the room otherwise I would have gone crazy.
The weather was crap. Ok, it could have been worse but it was foggy and rainy. Need I say more?
And there was 6 of us so we all couldn’t fit in the Sube so I needed to taxi a few people downtown and then go back to the hotel and grab the rest of the people. But first we needed to return the tent.
We stopped in at Canadian Tire to try to get our money back. They wouldn’t do it. They wouldn’t even exchange it but they said we could call a 1-800 number. So I did while I was there. The woman on the other end of the phone said that she had never experienced any issues with the tent that we had. Well we have (finger snap) so don’t tell me your tent isn’t inferior. She said that they have NEVER given money back for a warranty item. It’s replace or instore credit only. So we buckled at the instore credit and handed the phone to the Canadian Tire woman. BUT, Canadian Tire doesn’t give instore credit so they had to give us our money back! Shabam baby!! Take that! And now our extra night in a hotel is paid for.
By the time we got downtown, my hubby and aunt (who were taxied first) said that they had seen everything and they were ready to get dry and fed.
We parked the car and set off on Water St. There were a lot of neat little boutiques along Water St. but what I really wanted to see what the colourful houses.
We stopped in at a neat little bar for lunch. Great food. I think it might have been the best poutine I’ve had yet. After lunch, we kept on Water St. and took some photos and then walked back along another road that runs parallel to Water St. I asked a woman for directions to The Rooms and so my mom and the hubby took off uphill to it, while my aunt and the tweenager and I walked back to the car.
I picked up a Canuck’s hockey jersey while we were walking back. Kind of an odd thing to buy in Newfoundland but what the hell.
We headed to The Rooms. It was pretty cool there. Some nice artwork and a museum. I was a little disenchanted with the museum but the Inuit display was very interesting.
Then I did the taxi thing again and back and forth with every one we got back to the room and did MORE packing. Then off to dinner at the hotel again. Thanks for dinner mom!
Early to bed tonight so that we can start fresh tomorrow for our voyage over seas.
Sleeping: free since we brought back the tent.
Wee babe disposition: Really good.
Stress level: Climbing as the packing is looming. I would say about a 6.
