Alki Beach

Today is the last day I will see Travis for a while. (while I stay here and find jobs, he is heading on a jet plane tomorrow for Utah.) This morning we decided to take a break from job hunting and have a quiet morning in Seattle, or more exact, Alki Beach. It was so pretty there. We walked along the beach for a bit and decided we needed to eat something for breakfast. We found a cute little place that was open for breakfast, Christos. It was a Greek-Pizza-Pasta restaurant that was run by a definetly very authentic Greek family. It was like being at home with Travis' Yia Yia (Grandma) The little old lady who everyone referred to as Mama, talked us in to coming in the door when we were looking at the posted menu. I think if Travis ever misses home we will definetly head there again. After our delicious breakfast we headed across the street to the beach. It was so pretty and peaceful. We relaxed for a few hour and headed back home. Tonight my sister is hosting the HOA annual barbaque. It should be another fun night submirged into suburbia!

Whoa! You mean there's really an "Alki" beach? I was expecting to see pictures of passed out whinos being lapped up at the shore line.

Seriously, have fun, don't brood, and think positive. It's all going to work out beautifully for you two. said...

I am glad you had some down time. Have fun at your bbq!

Alki is one of our favorite places! And I think that is the only place we haven't eaten over there. We really do need to do Cactus sometime!
