Beach Sighting–The Eagle Has Landed

A Northwest sunny day plus low tide equals an awesome day to walk the local beach.

Like I said, it was low tide.

As we were walking along my hubby pointed out the birdhouses that are attached to the pilings.  About that time I decided to take a break and hubby and Divot kept walking.  I had knee surgery mid June and I’m not quite 100% yet.  I looked out to the water and there was an eagle sitting on the birdhouse.  I had my android phone and that’s what I took pictures from.  I took a pic, walked a bit closer, took another pic…

I love the beach.  How about you?


It’s All In The Burger!

Oh Five Guys how I love your burgers

A couple of months ago I wrote a post on Dicks burgers vs Five Guys.  I did a quick poll of my fellow Northwest neighbors.  For those of you that may not know, Dicks is and always been a local Northwest favorite.  However, Five Guys won.   See past post here.

Zagat recently conducted a Fast Food survey.  Ummmmmm, guess who won?  Yep, that’s right.  Five Guys.  See for yourself…

Here’s a hint  how to make your own fast food burgers.  Take an already cooked burger with cheeses and place on bun.  Add mustard, ketchup, pickle, and thousand island dressing.  Wrap individual burgers in foil and bake for 15-20 minutes on 325.  Yummy, I promise.
