Surrey is known in as the “City of Parks”, and it certainly livesup to its name. One of the parks that we explored was Crescent Park, within walking distance from the house, and a great little deli called the Beast and Brine. We walked through the park, observing the nature and absorbing the smell of grass (mostly me, James is used to that) before ending up near a cute pond and then finding the  Beast and Brine,  though I think a better name for it is “Baconland”.

There was lamb bacon, salmon bacon, bacon bacon (haha), chocolate coated bacon, CARAMEL CHOCOLATE COATED BACON and a myriad of patés, sausages, cheeses and cold meats galore. I was in heaven! This place is famous for sandwiches, and the staff told us that mostly people just take the order form, write “the beast” and then the content of the roll becomes the slicer’s choice. I am glad we opted for that, because the burger was out of this world. It contained ham, bacon, beef, cheese, pate, alfalfa, lettuce, pickles….and probably a million other sumptuous treats that I will never know but always treasure 😉 We enjoyed our rolls on Crescent Beach, which was full of mums and kids seeing as the weather had warmed up, even for my standards! The evening was spent (kind of) bar hopping and trying some Canadian favourites, namely Poutine, Hot Wings and a Caesar! (It’s like a Bloody Mary on steroids, with Clamato juice, that isn’t made from real clams or if I drunk that my head would probably swell up as large as about 50 clams)

Thank you to Liz for driving us around and for showing us the town, we had a great time! Xx
