…instead of fasting. Soon I will have to resume my de-fluffing but Dear and I went on a quick getaway to the Olympic Peninsula this week on a whim. Spent the night in Port Angeles after driving to the northwestern most point in the contiguous U.S.A. I have a few posts to show you of the beautiful things we saw but today I’m just going to fess up on all the good eats we enjoyed in just one day!
To go on this adventure we had to take a ferry from Edmonds to Kingston on the Kitsap Peninsula.
Our first food stop after disembarking the ferry and driving to the Olympic Peninsula was the Oak Table Cafe in Sequim. You cross the Hood Canal Bridge from the Kitsap Peninsula to get to the Olympic Peninsula.
Their specialty is an Apple pancake that you see above. It’s kind of like a souffle and it’s really enough sweetness for 4 people. I didn’t eat the whole thing. It was delicious and for me a once in a lifetime experience. So that started our eating experience for this day.
After driving out to and coming back from land’s end we checked into our B & B and got a recommendation for dinner.
Happy to report Dear now has another drink to copy for my pleasure called Old Mexico.
After my very sweet start to the day I was happy to end with a delicious savory surf and turf choice for dinner. We had a salad and a Dungeness Crab cake for our starters. I’ll show our B & B breakfast in another post…
I hope you aren’t hungry or dieting while reading this post! We are back home and back to cleaning and sorting and tucking away and throwing things out at this old house. We are in for another hot weekend here in the Seattle area. How are you doing?
I’m avoiding talking about the news because it is so troubling to me and I know many of you share my feelings. My heart and prayers go out to the families who lost their brave Marines yesterday and to those who were injured…may God comfort them and help us all.

Looks yummy! So many reasons to eat… Lol! Eat to live or live to eat.. I am guilty…lol!
Not dieting and haven’t eaten supper at 7:40 pm…this is going to send me to the kitchen. Yes, it seems as if every day brings more troubling news.
I was hoping you were not fasting on your little get-away. Looks like you had good eats on your fun adventure!
Ah–the Olympic Peninsula! One of my most favorite places in the Pacific NW. I shall look forward to seeing it again through your eyes:) Was the lavender in bloom in Sequim?
PS: Thank you for your last comment on this post.
If I can ever talk myself out of summer in Maine, the northwest is an area I want to explore in more depth.
Looks like some good feasting there!! Unfortunately, the feasting is far more pleasurable than the fasting.
You are the best food photographer. I wasn’t hungry, but I am now!
Carl and I are heading to Sequim tomorrow, just for the day. I can’t wait for an Apple pancake. The picture is wonderful!!. Their Dutch babies pancake sounds good,too, but I make them myself once in awhile. Where did he B and B send you for dinner ?
Hi Carol, We went to Michael’s in Port Angeles on First Street http://www.michaelsdining.com/. Have fun!
