Don't you just love a nice little get-away? My darling husband and I just spent a few days at the Lake Quinault Lodge in the Olympic Rain Forest... Washington State.
It is SO beautiful!
And, restful. Let me just say, if you love a nice little vacation with a bit of shopping thrown in... this is NOT your dream destination.
It's in the MIDDLE of NOWHERE... REALLY! There is nothing for miles... well, except the gift shop in the lodge and a little market thing across the street... that is if it's still even there. I didn't pay any attention. :-)
This is the one trip that we take just to REST.
And look at views like these....
And sit by the enormous roaring fire and read....
I did a little bit of embroidery.. I'm LOVING it again after not doing any for YEARS! But, it's small and easy to take and restful in it's repetitiveness.
The little restaurant at the lodge is beyond yummy....... The BEST fish and chips ever and we ALWAYS have the planked salmon. I've never had better anywhere.
We met a couple from Scotland. It was so much fun to listen to them talk. I must admit sometimes I couldn't quite get the gist of what they were saying. They use different expressions than we do. Darling little couple though.
We've been to this destination many, many times.... and, in fact, I still Facebook and email a lovely gal I met there YEARS ago.
My husband's from Hawaii (they are big time friendly people)... he'll chat with anybody and EVERYBODY.
While we were visiting with the Scottish couple we also chatted for a little bit with another couple... they left and drove some 120 miles to see something they'd planned and when they got back we were STILL sitting in the exact spot talking to the SAME Scottish couple FIVE hours later. They thought it was hilarious.
Yes, I admit it. I.can.talk.
I hope you did something fun and restful this weekend too!
