A Family Visit; Show Off Edmonds!

Brian's brother Ken came up from California last weekend to hang out and watch the Super Bowl on Sunday.We took him to our favorite little get-away, Edmonds...but first, breakfast at the Heartland Cafe. Okay, I'll give them the benefit of the doubt the first go-round, but in my opinion, breakfast should not take 45 minutes to serve. When it finally came, Ken's biscuits and gravy were divine, Brian's four cheese scramble was tasty and my corn beef hash with three eggs sunny-side up was fabulous.

Edmonds was chilly....typical gray and gloomy winter day, but we made the best of it and showed Ken all our favorite places.

We spent a good 30 minutes at the bookstore, walked main street and checked out the garden shop and of course right next door is a scrumptous little chocolatier (and I've got a bag of goodies to prove it).

We walked down to Brackett's Landing....took a few funny photos and had a look around the marina before walking back to Main street for a little wine tasting at Arista Cellars, a look around the Wooden Spoon and a sampling of tea at the tea/beach shop.

Dinner.....Zippy's Burgers (perhaps the last one before they move to White Center). The best run-down-your-arm-yummy-juicy-cheesy-gut bomb on the planet.

A good Saturday!
