I ate at Alchemy Bistro & Wine Bar for the first time yesterday. We had a great table on their outdoor patio. My dish (Carne a la Padilla) had cooked lamb with balsamic and beef with chimicurri on top of a bed of greens. Super good. Out of the two, I like the Argentian marinated style better. Maybe that means I need to move Argentina up on my list. 😉

Sand beaches are precious in Washington as most beaches are pebble or rock. Loved being back on this beach!

I stumbled upon Hall's Hill Labryinth on my way to Port Blakely on Bainbridge Island. Near the labryinth is a Buddhist prayer wheel. Turn it nine times while saying a prayer and we can turn the "inner wheel" of our hearts. *

The day has progressively become warmer and warmer. It's got me thinking about the cherry cider I had @sixknottaphouse in Winthrop. Perfect for a day like today. Why did I not bring a growler home?
