Last summer I made it up to Seattle for a few days and on the first evening we went to Ivar’s Acres of Clams on the waterfront for dinner. We ate outside and watched the ferry’s leave out across the Puget Sound. I had visited here almost thirty years ago for my first out of town conference and had dinner here the night before I left. If felt great to be able to return for another visit. The food is great if you’re ever in the area too. The setting sun made a great backdrop for this seagull waiting for a little snack.
