Northward, Part II

We leave the hotel bar with relief, and walk to the lobby to catch the hotel shuttle to the pier.

"Where you folks headed?" the driver asks. We give him the name of a highly recommended Italian restaurant. "Never been there myself."

He picks us up a few hours later and asks how the food was.

"Excellent," we rave. It was truly delicious.

"As good as The Olive Garden?" our driver asks.

We pause. "Yes," I tell him. "Maybe even better."
