Mosaic Monday ~ Saturday Road Trip

Dear wanted to head down to Lacey, Washington because that’s where Cabela’s is and I went along for the ride with an understanding that a little side trip would be acceptable, too. We got to the Cabela’s parking lot right before 8 A.M. and people were already coming out the doors with their brand new digital food dehydrators. I took an unscientific look see poll and saw that the dehydrators were definitely the hot ticket item of the morning!

 

While I was counting dehydrators for my unscientific poll I also got to see animals from Africa, North America including Alaska! That Steller Sea Lion was from the Smithsonian of all places. They even had an huge aquarium filled with some great looking fish. Dear was off looking at guns and ammo and other fun stuff like that.

 

We finished up our time at Cabela’s with our appetites ready for a nice breakfast. Doing some research on the computer before we left home I came across a restaurant in Olympia called Sage Brunch House. We trusted the computers directions and headed south of Lacey to Olympia to try and find the restaurant. After a few wrong ways we managed to put two and two together and found this little out of the way spot in West Olympia. I think the chef was related to Julia Child because she was not shy with butter! The food was really tasty and that Blueberry Walnut pancake with real maple syrup was amazing! The real reason we ended up in Olympia was to see this…

 

Our Washington State Capitol. This was the first time Dear and I had ever been to our state capitol. I’ll show more pictures of our stop here later in the week. I hope you noticed that we had some fine weather for our little road trip.

I’m looking forward to a wonderful week with family and friends. Hope life is treating you all well.

I’m linking up to Mosaic Monday with Mary at Little Red House.

Photobucket replaced all my photos with ugly black and grey boxes and they are holding my photos hostage until I pay them lots of money. Iā€™m slowly going through all my posts and trying to clean them up and replacing some photos. Such a bother.

  1. Road trip!!!!! Our youngest daughter has a friend who got married last May…her husband wants to live off the land….to the point that he is going to string up green beans to dry them somehow…no fancy digital anything for them. :o) It is so fun to listen to her talk about their lives….reminds me of the 70’s.

  2. Oh, I LOVE road trips! What a fun day–guns, ammo, pancakes, seals, dehydrators (???), and a capitol building. Sounds like a most interesting and educational outing.

  3. I love a road trip, especially on a sunny weekend. I’ll have to check out Cabela’s the next time we’re down that way.

  4. Oh. ..Cabellas and the state capitol. It looks like you had a great time. .and that pancake looked worth it’s weight in butter. How fantastic. It was a great day to do a road trip ..that is for sure.

  5. Cool road trip _ something for both of you. (I like that!) The blueberry pancakes are way up there on my list of highlights. šŸ™‚ The state capitol building is certainly majestic.

  6. I do love road trips! Such fun! You saw a little of everything … digital food hydrators, hunting and fishing, and the breakfast you had!!!! WOWOW! I’m going to road trip with you!

  7. Can’t wait to see how Washington’s capitol building compares with Utah’s. As an adult I find such architecture to be fascinating.

  8. Did you have breakfast and then brunch? I don’t blame you… it looks too good to pass up. Sounds like a nice Saturday date.
