Wednesday, Bright and Sunny with late afternoon showers
We strolled down Chebucto Street to the Highwheeler cafe/deli/bakery for breakfast only to be told by the snippy young waitress that "we don't do scrambled eggs, we only flip 'em". Somewhat taken aback, we went on to the Village Kitchen which apparently is owned by a late riser: closed at 9 am. So we went on to have a very nice breakfast at the Yellow Cello Cafe where they cheerfully prepare the eggs any way you like, the breakfast was excellent and a good value too.
Jon had to get his espresso at Bean There where they also have very rich sour cream cinnamon muffins. We returned to Highwheeler for their cinnamon twists which , according to Jon, are similar to but not quite as good as my mother's roll ups.
We spent the rest of the morning at the Alexander Graham Bell Heritage center which is a really fascinating look at this brilliant inventors life.

We walked through more rain to bell Buoy for dinner where we had very good fish and; chips with strawberry rhubarb crumble for dessert.
Quite a nice rainbow to brighten an otherwise drippy day. I started washing the boat and was soon washing in a downpour, but kept going anyway - lots of salt to wash off from Newfoundland. The rainbow was actually a rather spectacular double rainbow, but I cannot get my pictures of it to assemble correctly, so this one will have do:
