A 5:30 AM start this morning. Jamie had training and had to be on the ice at 7am.
Afterwards we got lost in a genuine western horsey store in Cloverdale for an hour or so.
We are now in the old Cloverdale town which has a genuine western feel to it. We are at a restaurant called The Vault having steelhead salmon and fries. If you ask for chips, you’ll get crisps! steelhead salmon is actually a rainbow trout and it is delicious.
I’m having a locally brewed craft porter while Jamie is trying to buy a replica revolver online. How the hell will I get that thing into Ireland?
It sounds like we are truly living the life over here, but there are moments when I am wondering what on earth am I doing.
But, yeah! We are living the life!
There is a real horsey feel to this place, even though it is now part of a larger metropolis.
The Cloverdale Rodeo and Country Fair is an annual event.
