Mid week walk and dinner in town

Went for a stroll after work, along Oriental Bay and then took a turn toward the city. Moseyed along Courtney Place for a bit; buzzing on a Wednesday night. CP sure has changed since I lived at this end of town in the late 70s. Then it was a 10c bus ride to the station and CP was a windswept dive of dingy shops. Now it's funky bars and cafes.

We ended up at one of those: Sweet Mother's Kitchen, an southern American cafe. Gumbo, crawfish, jambalaya, and... po boy sandwiches!

Oh yeah, I've been wanting to try one of those ever since I did A Streetcar Named Desire at uni. Didn't get one in the States, but got one on Courtney Place! Pulled pork and coleslaw and it was AWESOME. Curly fries were pretty good too. Mmm mmm.
