We intended to take a dolphin cruise and then drop in at our friends, John and Louanne's house. But we didn't do this! Sadly, it meant we will have to wait until our next trip to this area to be able to visit the famous balcony where John posts his "beach reports". But I hope they understood we just needed some only us time.

|What can I say about how beautiful this is?|
After sunrise, it was too early to start shopping but we also needed to find the recycling place for all our bottles, cans and paper collected during our stay. After so many years of serious recycling in Scotland, we just could not force ourselves to simply put them in the trash. It was difficult to find these bins and no one we asked knew where they would be either. So we had to resort to going to McDonalds for a second breakfast just to use their internet! Turned out, the place we were looking for was in the Landing Park, virtually next to where we were staying!
|Looked like he just rowed in for a paper and a coffee!|

The white buildings...
|Did I mention watching the dogs too?|
They were having so much fun!
After this peaceful start to the day, we headed off the Silver Sands Premium Outlets. We have been so busy this trip we have not really shopped at all. Not like us but we have been too busy having fun and catching up with friends so compressed shopping time is a small price to pay!

On the way back to Steamboat, we stopped at the harbour and had great timing! Some charter fishing boats had arrived and it was really interesting to see the fish they brought in!

Then it was time to stop at Margaritaville to refresh ourselves with a non-alcoholic daiquiri sitting at our "local" on our regular seats and watching the boat traffic again. Such a peaceful and beautiful place to recharge our batteries.
