international icecream day - load 'er up!

(Photo credit: Brian Newhook, Keels, Bonavista Bay, NL)

Past saturday, if you didn't know, was international icecream day. Well why not. Those brave or something or other were able to score a free icecream if they showed up in their pyjamas at Moo Moos. My son and his willing dad were the first there, bed hair and all, at 9am for some double dutch choc and the Moo Moos special Turtle cheese Cake. At least that's what I heard. Personally, I preferred a few more snooze minutes - having been at the pool the night before for a good clinic on bracing with Jim Price. You can never get enough practise with braces.

But back to icecream. temporarily. I was reminded of a recent photo submission by Brian Newhook, local paddler and, it appears, iceberg wrangler (though latter description brings on a lot of understandable hand wringing by our club). Nevertheless, as the above photo shows, there is more beauty in nature than can be imagined at times. A perfect melting softserve.

Lick, twirl and keep a good distance.

That is an amazing photo.

As for icecream, you've just made me long for my other homeland in Italy. Nothing beats freshly made jasmin icecream from Palermo

Alison Dyer said...

yes come in gorgeous shapes. But as for icecream, sounds like Italy has the flavours to die for. Jasmin. wow!

Alison, you should definitely go to Sicily if you're seriously into icecream. The average icecream parlour in Palermo will have 10-15 home made flavours, changing the menu a bit every day. The better places, like Stancampiano, Ilardi and Da Ciccio, have many more.

What fun your boys must have had, Moo-Moo's in 'jammies for ice-cream! Did everyone sing the Ice Cream song (I scream, You scream, We all scream for ice cream...)?

Alison Dyer said...

perhaps they sang it - it Italian! :)

There are a bunch more pictures from that same paddle we did on my blog, back in the archives:

Yes, we were very lucky with the weather that day. Conditions were perfect. We plan to return again this year and explore somemore of the coastline. There are a lot of interesting features near Keels, including a huge sea arch.
