Calgary Part Three: Tattoo and Food

A snow dusted morning on Stephen Avenue

Stephen Avenue is basically a major pedestrian mall in Calgary.  
The street is known for some of the finest restaurants, cafes, pubs and 
bars, along with a diverse range of boutiques, spas, and high-end retail

Warming up with a Large Apple Cinnamon Tea from Tim Hortons

With 1/2 a packet of Splenda stirred in for sweetness

I highly recommend this one to all of you. Tastes freakishly similar to hot apple cider! 

...Why would I take a photo of a tattoo and piercing shop?

Heroes and Villains Tattoo and Piercings

Well, because I got a tattoo!

It's a tattoo of 5 blackbirds soaring through the 
sky soaring on the side of my left wrist/forearm 

Blackbird: A Light in the Darkness

"When a blackbird flies into your life your connection with
 nature and the forces of creation increase. The magic of the
 underworld surfaces in your life. Awareness in heightened 
and change on a cellular level begins. The blackbird teaches
 you how to acknowledge your power and use it to its fullest"

It's still healing which is why it looks a little rough/scabby in the photos

Now let's change the subject from tattoos to food!

Sunterra Market. Below are a collection of photos of all
 the meals and snacks I bought here, throughout my trip

My make-it-yourself salad from the Salad Bar

Spinach, Romaine, Cucumber, Green Onion, Edamame, Chickpeas, 
Sundried Tomatoes, Chicken, Hard-boiled Egg, Pickled Bell Peppers, 
Jerusalem Artichokes, with a sweet and tangy Date and Balsamic Dressing

Greek Salad with nice big chunks of Feta Cheese and Olives

Lemon and Herb Roasted Salmon

The best salmon I have eaten thus far; Flaky, oily, 
melt-in-your-mouth, and loaded with lemon and dill

Marinated Vegetable Salad

And I saved the best for last: Chocolate Lover's Delight Muffin

White Chocolate Chunks and Dark Chocolate Chips.
 Addictively sweet and impossible to resist! I kept it in my 
purse for spontaneous snacking, but that didn't last long :)

Awesome tattoo. I'm currently contemplating one on my left wrist/forearm. Actually, I should have an appt for a consultation with a wicked tattoo artist here in Vancouver. Shh, don't tell my mom ;)

I adore your tattoo!!!! I have a similar one on my left wrist (three swallows on telephone wires).

Mmm, that Sunterra food looks delish, especially the Greek salad and chocolatey muffin!

Love the tattoo! Crows/black birds are my favorite. When we were in TN over the summer I used to watch them for hours. They seem so loyal and stay with their group.

Perfect! Looks great. What a lovely sentiment about the black bird.
