It is spring and we finally got to have a proper welcome for Captain James to our city, Orillia Ontario Canada.   We went to the outskirts and showed him this sign.

Caro-Claire Braund Wiles and her husband Martin are hosting him and he goes about with them to their various appointments.  This time it was to the dental office in Newmarket.

The dental hygienist was all set to check his teeth but he was reluctant to do that and wanted to make a quick exit!

After the “dental experience”. We made a hasty exit and we took him to a very famous Chinese Restaurant Buffet called “The Mandarin”

They have a senior’s discount and as we did not have the Captain’s birth certificate with us we explained that he was visiting with us from the UK and he was born a LONG TIME AGO and that he really did qualify!! They allowed him to have it!

What a feast there was!

However when he saw this fish entrée, he couldn’t resist it and he bypassed some of the Chinese cuisine (after all he is  fisherman!)

Dessert was a different story!

Decisions, decisions!

As we were getting ready to leave, he realized that they had an aquarium of fish, complete with a ship wreck and lots of fish swimming around.

He felt right at home – Hope it didn’t make him too homesick for the sea!
