Spokane and the Grill-Creamery

“Hey! AdventureMan said, “how about barbeque?”

“Sounds good to me,” I responded. After years of doing without, we are still vulnerable to the siren sound of barbecue.

On entering the parking lot, we got a clearer view of the sign.

Hmmm. Nope. Not quite what we had in mind.

Not sure where we were going, we drove further into the strip mall and there we found it:

Quirky. Individual. Not your franchise . . . just what we like, something new. It doesn’t always work out, but this one was pretty good. I had the Moussaka, and AdventureMan had the Gyros:

After dinner we hit the Spokane Fred Meyer where I found just exactly the right pants I was looking for – long pants for the Happy Baby, who is now crawling, and very very fast, so fast he gets rug burns on his knees. I always love shopping at Fred Meyers, especially when what I want is on sale, and then they take money off the sale price. Wooo HOOO, it brings out the cave woman in me, bringing home the bargain!

Leaving Spokane, the scenery changes again, back to warm and toasty, with lakes and windmill farms:

As we near Seattle, we see the Cascades, and Mt. Rainier:

The rest of the day wouldn’t interest you. It was hard work. When we opened up our storage locker, I looked at it in dismay . . . how had I let so much stuff accumulate over the last few years? I had survival stuff – laundry detergent, hair shampoo, a back up hair dryer, fingernail polish remover, envelopes, wrapping papers and ribbons, and all kinds of treasures I have brought back with each trip from overseas, to store until we live once again in Seattle. Now, we must get rid of what we can, and take the rest to Pensacola. Oh aargh. It was hard work.

We were rewarded with a beautiful Seattle sunset:
