|Pat's bus arrives at the Wilmington train station yesterday|
Pat arrived in Wilmington yesterday safe and sound (and pooped) from his 27 hour bus trip from his home in Toronto, Canada.
|There he is folks, a little bedraggled but standing upright and in the good old USA!|

We were blessed with a beautiful, perfect spring/summer day yesterday. Could not have been better for our hour and a half ride to the northern part of the state.
We timed it just right because just as Larry parked his car and we walked down the bus station (which is at the train station, very convenient), there was Pat.
After hugs and hugs we were off to have lunch at a vegetarian restaurant (today's banner picture at the top of this blog).
Now that was an experience. The restaurant was called "Drop Squad Kitchen" (don't ask). We couldn't find it. Me, with my bum leg hobbling around with my cane and we're wandering all over the new refurbished Wilmington waterfront looking for this restaurant. Me, who is used to leading the pack . . . not this time. I'm struggling to keep up with everyone.
We finally found the "restaurant", it was located inside "Molly's Old fashioned ice cream shop. Turns out it is a mother and daughter operation - one half the restaurant being an ice cream shop and the other half (by the daughter) vegetarian fare.

Pat ordered a faux steak sandwich which was great! His smoothie was a chocolate dream.
Well folks, I have to cut this blog short because Pat's up and we're off to a late breakfast or a brunch or an early lunch. But not before I spray his Chevy Malibu rental which smells like a dirty ashtray, despite having a NO SMOKING stickers in the car.
