yesterday's breakfast with Dad...

it was sunny, but very  blustery! 
we braved it and ate outside!

Father's Day At
Chambers Bay Grill

there was a special menu.

meet my Dad,  he's Faccionable, and very handsome!

 a  paved trail runs the entire length of the course on Chambers Bay.
there were moments that we felt like we could be seated at the Westminster
Kennel Club!  quite a parade of pups!

here,  is our view of south Puget Sound. if you look to the left of the photograph,
you will see a freight train entering into the picture perfect scene!

the area is very natural. the course reminds me of the courses of Scotland.
my Dad said, "Lynne, how do you describe this?"  "It's not stuffy and fancy."
my answer, "it simple, beautiful, understated, and non contrived, Dad."
"they didn't mess with already perfect."

i love the atmosphere of golf course grills. you feel like a neighbor popping in for a visit!
the waitress graciously took several photographs for us.

i wore the pearls that he surprised me with when he popped into my office
to take me to lunch after my treatment for BC.  he told me that i was brave.  
(i will tell you a secret... emotionally, it's rougher on the loved ones) 

with that said...

...i am SO JAZZZZED this Monday morning!
Summer begins this week!
it's going to be packed with activity and to do's!
life is full and fun! 
i better sign off and get my "bum" to the gym!
