After six weeks of visiting family and friends in New Jersey, I flew west to meet Scott in Seattle. I was just in time to celebrate our seventh wedding anniversary of July 7th. He had driven our rig from Colorado to Whidbey Island, to visit with his family. When he picked me up at the airport, he surprised me with two nights at the Hyatt Recency before returning to Whidbey. We were on the 30th floor in a corner room with great views.
We began our celebratory day, 7/7, taking a walk along Pike Place Market looking for places to enjoy our anniversary dinner. Then, we strolled over to Miner’s Landing to see The Seattle Great Wheel at Pier 57 on Elliott Bay.
On the way back to the hotel, we stopped at a deli and picked up wine, cheese, figs and crackers to eat for lunch. Later that day, we left the hotel and set out for our anniversary dinner. Although we planned to eat at the Cheesecake Factory, we noticed “Ruth’s Chris Steak House”on our way. I had never heard of this restaurant chain before. We switched gears and was able to get a table in the bar area. We shared Scott’s steak and my halibut for our own “surf and turf” cuisine. We told the server that it was our anniversary, and he surprised us.
Unfortunately, it was not the dessert we had ordered. This was bread pudding, but we ordered Creme Boule. He went back into the kitchen and returned with the Creme Boule. He didn’t charge us We took the bread pudding back to the hotel and had it for breakfast the next morning. DELICIOUS!!
The following morning, we set out for Whidbey Island to visit with Scott’s family.
