Thoughts:
Debra – Beautiful early walk in the heavy fog and mist
Mark –  Wonderfully misty in the early part of the morning

Today was fairly non eventful, the most notable part being walking in heavy fog.  The scenery was very pretty and green but much the same as we experienced the day before. The highlight of the day was the restaurant experience. We have never been to a restaurant with so many rules (see photos below). Mark thought he was ordering a small cold meat platter with bread which he had pointed to several times on the menu. Instead he received a quarter of a cow that was trying to run around the paddock. Mind you, we should have been savvy to the fact that something was amiss when people at an adjacent table commented to us that the waitresses response to our request for bread was “how do you want that cooked”    ( in Spanish of course). Geoff thoroughly enjoyed Mark’s meal.
