lunch with a view

My favorite island spot for lunch with a view..........
As a blogger based on Bainbridge Island, I'm often asked my favorite place for lunch with a view of the water. My choice would be the Harbour Public House, affectionately known by islanders as "The Pub" - One can arrive by foot, ferry, your own boat, car and I suppose even by sea plane.

It's my go to place for fish and chips.....and while I was waiting for my order, I visited the pub's pretty little garden and the tall hollyhocks of summer.

Summer - Sunday Market

I'm so excited........a new Sunday market has sprung up right here on Bainbridge Island and the good news is that it's right in my own neighborhood. The Bainbridge Island - Lynwood Community Market is small but growing. I found a handful of vendors selling farm fresh produce and handmade crafts and products. Everyone was so friendly! Islanders love and support efforts like this, so I'm sure as more and more people find out about the Sunday Market, they will support it. As for me, I'm so thrilled that I now have an option right around the corner that I can walk to - with my produce basket in hand.
Beautiful fruit and farm fresh produce from Terrapin Farms

Metal Petals and Suyematsu Farms
We tried the green tea and apricot kombucha from Symbiosis Farms. The market runs through the
summer, Sunday's 10-2.

POSTCARDS from the island - roadside flowers

To me, summer on Bainbridge Island is about enjoying the simple pleasures of island living. On summer days, you may find Gus's flower cart parked along the roadside....... with a freshly picked bouquet.

in the garden - Harvesting Lavender

in the garden...........
It's lavender time. This is the first in many years that I'm actually picking and harvesting the lavender in my bainbridge island garden. I have been picking away and it still doesn't look like I've made a dent.  The plants are covered in lavender, so the garden still looks good. Now hung to dry and to be shared with friends.

a summer day in the city

What a beautiful summer weekend ......
We ventured into the city for a lovely morning spent at Seattle's Pike Place Market.
The market was bustling with people and everyone seemed to be enjoying the weather and spending time outdoors. The cut flowers stalls were filled with buckets of colorful stems just waiting to delight.
We purchased ingredients for our Nicoise Salad that was planned for our Sunday dinner
and finished our morning with breakfast at our favorite....... Le Pichet. So happy that summer is here!


The 4th of july....island style

At home on bainbridge island, were gearing up for the 4th of July. The holiday will be spent with family and friends - Grilling hamburgers and ribs, playing croquet on the lawn and strolls down to the beach.  In the afternoon  we will venture down to The Grand old Fourth - Our home town parade which is always a chance to see so many of our island friends and neighbors. Hope you all enjoy the holiday too.
