Today it rained even more than yesterday. But it gave us a chance to do more catching up, and we relaxed with our Kindles. I finished a book and started another.
Gavin, the fellow with the drone that we met at Indian Head Cove in the Bruce Peninsula National Park emailed us the video collage he put together in Tobermory. We thought he was just going to email us the footage of that night, but he sent us the video taken over a few days that he edited and set to music.
It's five minutes long and a great visual overview of Tobermory.
Here's the YouTube link for those that want to view it there: Aerial View of Tobermory. Thanks Gavin!
Steve & Esther had some errands to run, and didn't get back until the afternoon. When they returned, the rain let up just enough for Steve and me to go for our run.
The rain continued throughout the afternoon and then the four of us got together for dinner. The gals decided they were going to make sushi. Steve & Esther had a neighbor that showed them and Linda took a class on our 50th Birthday Cruise last December.
So, they cooked some rice, sliced up some cucumber, carrots, avocado, cream cheese, and some cooked shrimp and imitation crab. Many people think that sushi involves raw seafood, but "sushi" refers to a dish made with vinegared rice. You can have vegetarion sushi with no seafood, or you can have sushi with raw fish or with cooked seafood.
Esther started and spooned some rice onto a sushi rolling mat and then added nori (edible seaweed) and the ingredients of choice.
Linda attempted a shrimp roll.
The first couple of sushi rolls they tried didn't turn out so good. Let me re-phrase that, they tasted good, but they weren't very photogenic. :)
Linda tried again, using the nori on the outside. Now that one looked more like it was supposed to .....
and it sliced better.
Esther's next couple of rolls turned out prettier as well.
So, we had some laughs and ate sushi with a little soy sauce, ginger, and wasabi until we couldn't eat any more.
We made the best of a rainy day and went to bed early reading ourselves to sleep. We'll dream of sunny skies for tomorrow. :)
