Got Tums?

On this gorgeous warm day, after watching the first World Cup game, the four of us walked into town to the Dockside restaurant for fish and chips. In California, we'd never order fried fish, but again, this is the Maritime way. No complaints!

Yesterday, taking pictures of cats inthe neighborhood, I met one of the pwners who just happened to be the lady who designed the garden at Ashlea House. http://365project.org/Weezilou/365/2010-05-30 I told her I'd posted a picture on 365 and she asked me to send her the link. Today, I received a lovely note from the owner of Ashlea House who invited me to come by for a visit! Is this a great little town or what?
Yum! Yum!! I love the view too!! I love to eat outside any chance I can....so relaxing!! :)

what a delicious shot ;)

This looks so yummy! ;-)) What a wonderful shot, Louise! ;-) Did you see the news about the world oldest shoe? I thought it was a curious coincidence! Off to the house tomorrow, to look for writing under the kitchen drawers (if they are still there) ;-) Have a great weekend, too! ;-)

Lovely view you could sit there a while and people watch I imagine. Lovely to hear about your wee encounter with the garden designer of the B&B and how its led to another opportunity to see inside such a pretty lady- the house that is ;)

Beautiful view for your meal time. I must say, nothing quite compares to some delicious fish and chips!

my fave part of this shot is the background! it totally sets the tone and just adds so much! sounds like such a wonderful summer you're having! horribly humid here...
posted June 12th, 2010  
Love your title, Louise. I would definitely need some tums, but thats just me... nice shot with the water in the background. Having a fun summer there like we are in Colorado, aren't you. My motto is SAVOR each moment.

A great little town indeed! Great shot also! Stop by and see the boys when you get a chance. They have a chuckle for ya!

Mmm, fish and chips, an English speciality!
posted June 12th, 2010  
I agree about the background -- looks like you're definitely on VACATION....mmmmm....fish n chips......malt vinegar & tartar sauce! How fun that you got that invite -- great little town indeed!

Family, great food, awesome view, wonderful weather what more could a person ask for? I definitely think that covers it!
posted June 12th, 2010  
This would be a perfect snack! :))
plus that breathtaking view, very relaxing. Now I'm thinking of a lazy weekend, french fries, beer, burger, and the beach! Enjoy your weekend Louise :)

Lovely spot to sit and have a bite!
I adore Victorian houses ... I hope she'll let you take some shots of the inside ...
posted June 12th, 2010  
Love that picture... perfect meal...beautiful setting. And what fun about the B&B! It sounds like a great place to be....the more we read about it the more we want to join you.... just how many could you have for a sleep-over?

mm getting hungry fish and chips.. now I am homesick! Nice picture..
posted June 12th, 2010  
Nice...looks very very good.
posted June 12th, 2010  
I could eat that right away. though it's early morning here. Nice and sunny day you have. A perfect for a meal in the terrace and a cold beer:)
posted June 12th, 2010  
Looks super yummy! That's a common occurrence over on this side of the country too, in fact you probably had fish and chips when you were here. The view kinda looks like "Bastion Square" in downtown Victoria.
posted June 12th, 2010  
Not many chips there Louise you must be starving after packing that away poor thing; ) !!!! What a perfect scene! Us Brits love our fish & chips!
posted June 12th, 2010  
Sounds wonderful and looks great!
posted June 12th, 2010  
Yep..as Susan said...we all eat fish and chips here, too!
Our little corner here is also an historic fishing village, so it's quite a popular feast...down on the docks, or at the beach.
We usually call in our order, and a 5 min walk later ( which includes both ways ), we're chowing down. Yum!
But the best fish 'n chips ever, no matter where we went, was in England.

yummy!

I love fish and chips with a shandy (half beer/half lemonade). A nice relaxing shot.
Thanks again for letting me post your heart on my blog.

Meant to say Patrice Newell is the name of the grower of the garlic. She grows organic garlic and sells online. It sells out the first day it is released. Pauline has a book of hers I discovered in one of photos. http://365project.org/paulines/365/2010-05-13

The fish and chips look divine! Being a Cape Codder, I am very picky about where I'll order fish as well, but that looks so good! Lovely view as well.

How cool that you met the person who designed the Ashlea House's garden! I love how in small towns, a chance meeting like that can lead to an invitation!
posted June 12th, 2010  
That looks so good. My mouth is watering just looking at that photo.
posted June 12th, 2010  
Nice one Louise. I like the fish/chips - but I really like the BEER! (Sorry, but the beer has to be fully beer with no lemonade :-) )
posted June 12th, 2010  
That looks like really good fish and chips. :-)
posted June 12th, 2010  
Mmmm... Can't beat a really good fish n'chips... Hope you'll be watching today's game... I predict England 2 USA 0... :-)
posted June 12th, 2010  
What a lovely shot, you've made my taste buds activate, even though I haven't long finished dinner :)
posted June 12th, 2010  
Sounds lovely! Great shot, too.

posted June 12th, 2010

YUMMY! I'd love to sample some food there! The view is fabulous...!

What a great place to sit and relax for lunch I ordered F&C when I was in SD last month-ha ha ha! I never order it here but, I WAS on the coast :o)
posted June 12th, 2010  
Great shot! The food looks very tasty and I love that gorgeous view in the background. And I am not at all surprised that you are making new friends... you seem to do that everywhere you go. :-D
posted June 12th, 2010  
Great composition, and I hope you have a nice visit at Ashlea House!
posted June 12th, 2010  
Great pic. Makes me want to head to the shore for lunch outside on a restaurant deck. It looks like a pic from a restaurant's site. Nice composition. BUT tell me that really isn't beer and lemonade? Yuck! I have never heard of that, but was going to ask what kind of beer that is because it did seem so light in color. I prefer a full bodied beer and detest all the bottled brews that have a hint of fruit. But I hope you enjoyed your meal. :-)

I was just saying to Rick as we drove home last night that I have a growing list of things I want to share with my 365 friends ... it's almost frustrating to only have one post a day, but I've not yet reached the shutterfly "overflow" level of addiction! LOL!

posted June 13th, 2010  
Deep frying is not the worst thing you can do to fish. I'm ready for dinner...
posted June 13th, 2010  
I'm pretty sure it was your naturally sweet disposition that lead the Ashlea House owner to invite you for a visit. :) Thanks for your encouraging words and support! By the way... looks delicious!
posted June 13th, 2010  
this photo just makes me smile. this would be a perfect vacation meal for me...on the patio, near the water, fish and chips, and a beer..... heaven.

Louise, Moosehead is a nice brew. Glad to hear it wasn't a "Shandy". LOL! I googled that to find out what it was and wouldn't drink it on a dare. :-) No offense to anyone who likes it. Fizzy lemonade and beer? Yuck.
posted June 13th, 2010  
I can just feel the sunshine in this pic....and taste those yummy-looking fries...oh, wait, let me get that one that's falling off the plate.

This is such a great food shot. I like it espeiclaly becasue I love fish n' chips and I really love the background with eth water, boats and nautical flags flying. I am hesitant to post food shots at this point, I have not taken one that I am especially proud of, this is a good one.
posted June 14th, 2010  
Really nice to have an 'easy meal', we had a take away curry on that day.
