Gig Harbor, WA - Saturday Snapshots

Taking advantage of our beautiful weather while it lasts, my friend Nan and I ventured to Gig Harbor, WA, today for lunch. It's about a half-hour drive from our neighborhood to the MarketPlace Grille, a small cafe with good food and a gorgeous view. Here are a few snapshots from our excursion. 
(Click on photos to enlarge.)

View from our table at the restaurant.

We walked a little ways along Harborview Drive and were
rewarded with a view of Mount Rainier, peeking over the 
trees on the horizon.

Since Nan and I share a fabric addiction, we stopped
at this delightful quilt shop. Beautiful fabrics.

Then back across the Tacoma Narrows Bridge
headed for home (with views of Mount Rainier
along the way)

The photos remind me of the area around Bar Harbour in Maine. I too could do some serious damage to my bank balance in the fabric store.

Oh, I am green with envy at your beautiful surroundings, both in these photos and others you have shared. I am longing to jump in the car and drive!

That view and deck railing look so familiar! Your photos are wonderful reminders of a nifty little. Gig Harbor is one of my favorite places.

Since I already have several projects underway, I managed to leave the store without buying any fabric. How's that for self-control?

Sandra Nachlinger said...

Same here! But although we live within driving distance of Puget Sound and the Pacific Ocean, we don't visit often enough. My goal is to change that in coming months.

Sandra Nachlinger said...

It's such a charming place and easy to get to from my house. I'll go there again soon.

Melinda Ott said...

Oh, I know that bridge well! We have to go over it whenever we go up to visit my in-laws!

It's really close to you. Maybe you'll venture over there while the weather is so nice.

Sandra Nachlinger said...

It's definitely a memorable bridge, especially if you know the history of "Galloping Gertie" (which this bridge replaced). I'll let you do your own research if you want because I don't want to scare you.

What a wonderful day out! I would have enjoyed the quilt shop!

Sandra Nachlinger said...

They had a great selection of gorgeous, high-quality fabrics, as well as a computerized long-arm quilter that they demonstrated. It was a nice shop.

Sandra Nachlinger said...

Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed my post.
