An Update and a Road Trip

We woke up to a beautiful spring day here in the Pacific NW, so the DH and I decided to take a short road trip to a small town just south of Tacoma.  They have a few shops that I love to visit. Tacoma has a wonderful walking trail along the harbor so we decided to stop there for our walk and have lunch at one of the several restaurants along the water front.  Then we went on to Sumner, our final destination. 

 First, a quick update on "Slicker Bunny." All that is left is the cute flower umbrella, the whiskers, and the rain drops. My linen is more gray than the blue that shows in the photo.

 All for only $6 dollars at the Safeway!

When we got out of the car, this is what we saw as we looked up.  I think the trees are a variety of maple as they are beautiful colors in the fall. Look at that deep blue sky!!

 This is the view along the very long paved walkway.

 Lunch time! It was very good!

The view out the window of the restaurant! I think he gets hand outs during the summer when the deck is open.

 Here is one reason we went to visit Sumner.  This is one of the best antique shops in the area.

 Along the sidewalk there were several little areas of plantings.

The plums are blooming.  We saw them everywhere.
Thanks so much for joining me today!!!!
