Palisade is one of our favorite restaurants in the Seattle area.  The food is just wonderful and the view’s not so bad either!

Blue Monday-The Beachcomber   15 comments

Happy Blue Monday and Happy Valentine’s Week.  This weekend Hubby came down to California and we decided to try The Beachcomber Restaurant in Newport Beach.  We were not disappointed!  I found plenty of blue to photograph.  We ate, walked and enjoyed a beautiful day at the beach.  Winter is one of my favorite times of the year to go to the beach in southern California.  I’ll show you why…

You gotta love a restaurant that has blankets on each chair in case it gets a little chilly!  The blanket says, “Stolen from The Beachcomber”!  The food was delicious and the view – amazing.  Hubby and I decided that this will be a regular spot when we are down in California over the weekend. 

So,  if you are down in southern California, head on over to The Beachcomber.  I think you might like it!

Now have a great week and for more Blue Monday posts, click on the pretty bird up above and head on over to Sally’s!

Golden Berry & Zov’s   3 comments

Hubby flew down to California and we spent the weekend relaxing and running some California errands. Last night we went to dinner with my brother-in-law and sister who graciously let me stay with them while I am in California. Nick and Vera have hearts bigger than big and we love and appreciate them very much.

We went to Zov’s Bistro.  Wonderful food and great conversation.  Gary, one of the owners, introduced us to golden berries.   This is the only thing I took a picture of at dinner!  Go figure!

Birthday Tea with Ellen B!   6 comments

My sister Ellen took me to Madam Fifi’s Tea Room for a belated birthday lunch!  Oh my was it a treat!  Madam Fifi is just a delight!  If you find yourself in Bothell, you MUST enjoy a cup of tea at Madam Fifi’s!

We had the Grand Tea for Two and it was grand indeed!  YUMMY!

Madam Fifi also has a bakery with wonderful cookies, scones, brownies and other mouth watering treats!

Of course there is a gift shop at Madam Fifi’s as well!  I bought some teas to take home and enjoy!

Thank you Ellen for introducing me to this wonderful place for tea and thank you Madam Fifi for a delightful birthday lunch!

Steve and I went to Trellis in Kirkland for Sunday Brunch to celebrate our anniversary.

Definitely a place we will be coming back to – the food was wonderful!

Happy Hour with the Happy Wonderer   9 comments

Friday evening, my sister and I went to a nice little wine cafe for happy hour before I went to pick up hubby from the airport.  Happy hour is a great way to have a scrumptious light meal for almost half the price.  The nice part about a light meal, is you can say yes to dessert!  Life is too short to say no to dessert!  

The Happy Wonderer had the lovely scampi fennel salad and I had the hanger steak on a pesto flat bread! Both were delicious. Our dessert was a warm blueberry and peach cobbler with vanilla ice cream – a little something sweet to end the meal!

Lovely meal, lovely fellowship on a gorgeous day in Washington – what more  could you ask for?

How about a gorgeous sunset on Lake Washington…
