That font I used on the last post was weird and I couldn't figure out how to change it and didn't want to take the time to solve the problem so I just let it be. Now, I open this up and bam, it's back to the way it should be!
This morning we drove into Whitefish to do some shopping. It's a nice experience to walk the 3 blocks of main street and poke into shops along the way. One great thing about the main street in Whitefish is that the large chains, discount stores, and "big box" stores are absent. There are a few of those outside the downtown area, but a lot of them are about 20 miles away in Kalispell. We did see lots of new development in and around Whitefish, but mostly small scale.
We bought some special olive oils at Trovare, and greeting cards, but no shirt for Bob. Bob's shirt for the wedding on Saturday is at home on my ironing board because I told him I would press it. And then forgot to do it! So we looked at some shirts that were way above our budgetary comfort zone. Especially since he seldom wears anything other than t-shirts! A few of the stores are closed Mondays, so we decided to put off buying a shirt until we could look further.
We chanced onto a good little lunch from a new establishment inside the Palace bar (not a palace at all!). It was called Rebel Roots and operating on a small scale, having a few growing pains with service, but I'm glad we waited it out. We were able to share our grilled chicken bowl on riced cauliflower. It was delicious, and we got to sit at a sidewalk table for people watching.
We returned to the trailer and I tried out the campground laundry. It exceeded my experiences at other public laundries! We bought some firewood and invited Dan and Loti out for a fire in the Solo stove. The Solo stove was a gift to us from our kids, and it is great! Bob loves to have fires, but the smoke really turns me off. If it's too heavy, I get headachy and don't enjoy the experience at all. The Solo stove is made in a way that really minimizes the smoke but still gives the ambiance. Win-win! It does not give off the heat of an open fire, but we have clothes for that! We had some popcorn and beverages, and talked about what our plans for the week would be. Dan and Loti looked so tired, so we called it quits and made plans to go to their place in the morning to start working on preparations. It was a nice evening out, so we waited for the fire to burn down before heading off to bed.
Thank you for stopping by! I appreciate the time you have taken to look for and read my story. I hope you find something that you like!
