The fact that there is not a drop left of the 3600 cases of Absinthe bottled late last year at St. James Distillery was was more of a disappointment to us than the blustery weather, but the fruity vodkas and liqueurs helped ease our sorrow. Good thing we laid down a substantial grease and carbo base at Jim’s Coffee Shop an hour before the tour. None of us had the stomach for Jim’s Super Burger though.
Later on, I took my guests to a little-known Middle Harbor Shoreline Park for no particular reason. Even on a good day, this park feels deserted, and today was no exception. There were fewer than 6 people anywhere in sight. We were all quite happy about that. What a lovely day!
