Yesterday, Tuesday, we were cranky with each other. I find driving on strange roads is sometimes stressful. I think it is because I do the driving from the passenger seat and these roads are challenging in that they are narrow. After breakfast I spent a lot of time doing my blog which meant we were later than planned hitting the road. To be quite honest I did not want to go out. The thought of driving down the one way road again was not appealing.
John just plain ran out of steam. This happens when he does not have regular meals, as occurred this afternoon. He is becoming more sensitive to missing lunch or having a late dinner with no in between snack, as he grows older. Not fun, especially since he doesn't realise how unreasonable he has become. My sense of humour deserts me when I need it most. I guess I missed my lunch too.

Captain Cook was worshipped her when the people mistook him for a returning God. There is a monument to him just a little further along the beach.

Island Dream Icecream is locally made and a treat on the island. It is deliciously creamy, almost decadent, with wonderfully flavours. We also find it expensive compared with some of our gourmet icecreams in New Zealand. John had ginger and vanilla, with chocolate fudge. I had coffee, (what else) with Tahitian vanilla. The flavouring was just right. Delicate, yet enough to tempt you to want more! I don't know what they make icecream with here but it doesn't leave your fingers in a sticky mess when it melts.
