Can't think of a title for this post

This was a quiet bopping around day. Walked around downtown looking in shops and taking a few photos as it turned out to be a glorious day.  I went to the Scone Witch in the early afternoon and had a currant ginger scone with devon cream and apricot jam - I didn't need it but couldn't resist.  And I got myself a cranberry/orange scone for my breakfast....I then went to see the movie "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" which I loved.  Makes me want to go back to India soon!!  I had supper at 6 p.m. at the Parliament pub opposite Parliament Hill - how do I know that - because the Peace Tower chimed at 6 p.m.  I had a quiche and salad - or should I say the Jack Layton quiche - well better than the Stephen Harper pizza!!! However the quiche wasn't the best I've had and could not finish it -will not go back there.  It was neat to sit outside though and see the Parliament buildings.  At one point the police drove in with flashing lights followed by about three black cars with smoked glass windows followed by another police car.   Walked around the market area and popped into a tea shop where I saw some Paul McCartney tea which of course I had to have!!! 
Stopped off at Metro to get some fruit and busy packing and uploading photos.  Not the most exciting day but it's back on the road tomorrow so needed a rest day. 
I don't think my motel in Burlington has wifi so could possibly be off line for a few days.  I thought it did but nothing on the web site to indicate that.  Will see..once I am done I have to take the ethernet cable back so I can get my drivers license back!!!
