Things and Stuff: Starting our Travels


It’s been busy busy busy round the casa lately . . . but we found time to celebrate anniversary #3 on Wed night with a lovely dinner at Copperleaf. Grilled octopus, cauliflower crème (aka soup), salmon bacon (ye gods, yes), caramelized scallops, beef filet and beef cheeks were our mains. No need for dessert. A lovely lady (M.) dining at the next table thought we were charming and interesting, and we struck up a conversation about travel and books, and things. I know have a book (series?) to check out, and possibly we’ll see her again in Port Townsend for a Victoriana festival.

Traveled without fuss on Thursday, ending up at the Hampton Inn outside Dulles airport.  J. old friend Josette and her husband took us out for a lovely dinner at Seasons 52 in Tyson Center. Seriously yummy food, even better conversation.

Now I’m writing to y’all . . . and preparing for bed.
