A lovely evening out at a new (for us) restaurant

The 2012 goals that I am seeming to be most motivated to achieve relate to doing new things.  I have always liked exploring new places and having new experiences so that should be no surprise, but in some sense it still is.


Anyway, we finally went to the sustainable seafood restaurant in our neighborhood.  I had heard from friends that it was really good, but had not liked going to the previous restaurant located in that space and didn't really like the prices so we had put it off.  Well, my goal sent us there last night and it was a really good meal!  Hubby stuck with salmon which is one of his current favorite eating out choices and I tried the Thresher Shark special.  We both enjoyed our meals which came with yummy cornbread, a great salad and choice of a side (collard greens for him and broccoli for me).  Add wine for me and a beer for him and some good conversation. 

We've been together for 33 years and we still enjoy spending time together!  Like most restaurants in our neighborhood, it was pretty noisy but we could still have a conversation while eating.


A small restaurant within walking distance, very cheerful service, good food, and good company.  Oh, did I mention the yummy gelato place next door - great stop for dessert in warmer weather.  Who could ask for more?

  1. Very nice, Juhli--especially the part about being together 33 years and still enjoying one another. What a gift.

  2. Sounds like a wonderful evening with your sweetheart. We have been at it 38 years now and still enjoy having a little outing on our own sometimes. We need to branch out more and try places we have never been, you have put the fire in my belly to give it a try!
