Weekend Wrap Up: Mom's Visit

My Mom is visiting the Pacific NW from Virginia.

She spent part of the weekend in West Seattle with Brian, Sammy and I and then rode down with me in the Bronze Goddess to Portland for a few days at Rebecca Lane.

Friday's temps were HOT!  It was lovely to sit outside on the patio and enjoy some wine.

On Saturday, Mom spent most of the morning helping us re-decorate our living room.  Thanks, Mom....there is nothing quite like your decorating touches.  In the afternoon, we had a wonderful lunch at Duke's Chowder House, right on Alki beach. 

1lb steamer favorite!

Last evening we took a walk along the Murrayhill pond before grabbing a bite to eat at Ruby Tuesdays.

Duke's famous bloody Mary - with jumbo shrimp!

Mom flies back to Virginia early this morning and we will miss her until our next adventure together.
