I ate grilled scallops and saved enough space to taste banoffee, a masterpiece of banana and toffee, including Dulce de leccomus,
The room had a view: I stayed in a lovely suite with a small living room and comfortable bedroom with TV and plush furniture.
And a big shower.
There are some golden tiles on the floor.
There is also a nice big tub.
I like my scenery and look east.
At the top of the building in the city center, I watched the sun rise, turning the sky pink and the ferry to and from Dartmouth.
