A Table For Two, West Coast Version

We are drawn to water and dining outside. Last week it was at the long picnic table across from the pond, last night it was at the zinc topped table on the deck looking out to Colvos Passage. This time of year we grab any chance we can to dine alfresco. It was interesting as someone posted on social media how lovely that we still set the table when it is just the two of us. Oh my yes, we must honor the meal! Always. I even set the table when we have a quick breakfast of oatmeal. A lovely napkin, flowers, a few objects–they all elevate the experience. Even if it is the simplest of meals. Truly can’t recommend it enough. On the menu, catfish that I topped with warm chèvre & olives. Bailey snoozing away on her pillow next to us. By the time we had supper the boat traffic had slowed to just a few so the water was quite calm. The red geraniums dictated the theme for the table. As a purist, this by no means was the end of Summer. We still have three weeks of it left and we are going to enjoy every drop of it.

Sending many safe thoughts to any of my readers in the path of hurricane Dorian. We are thinking of you…
