Montana Signs…

On our road trip to Yellowstone we got low on gas in an area where there were several exits with “no services”, oops! We finally found an exit with a small 4 pump station across the street from the one convenience store in the very small town of Alberton.


As we headed back to the freeway we passed the town’s tavern. I didn’t notice the coffins until I uploaded the photo. I’ve never seen that before.

P1060414Our stop for the night was Missoula, Montana and we saw this sign in the historic downtown area.

Isn’t that a nice idea? We flagged him down and asked about where we might enjoy a refreshing brew and where we could later enjoy a steak. He mentioned one restaurant called The Depot and then when we found the spot he recommended for a brew the proprietor there recommended the same restaurant for steak to us.

The local brew at The Dram Shop was refreshing and our Steak and Panko Veggies at The Depot were very good.

I’m linking up to signs, signs with Lesley.

Today is Wednesday. I have to remind myself of what day of the week it is after a Monday holiday. How about you? The forecast is saying this is the nicest day weather wise this week so you’ll find us out in the yard doing some work.


Eating on the Road…

Whenever we travel we like to find spots to eat where the locals eat. We found just the place in Raymond, Washington for breakfast on our way to the Long Beach Peninsula. You can see all the old timers in the restaurant.

In my restraint stage of life right now I decided to order off the senior menu. I ordered the egg and cake. Look at the size of that pancake! Yikes! I was expecting a little pancake.

Here’s another photo from the main drag in Raymond.

Once we got to the Long Beach Peninsula we asked and listened to different locals on where they would eat in and around town. Three spots were suggested and we had dinner at one, breakfast at the other and had to pass on the third.

For dinner we decided to eat at The Depot in Seaview.

Dinner was delicious. Dear had filet and I had osso buco. We passed on dessert.

On our way home from our overnight we stopped for breakfast at 42nd Street Cafe and Bistro in Seaview. The none restraint plate is Dear’s. After all it is his vacation week from work!

This was our final destination in between all the restaurant stops. We had the opportunity for lots of walks along the beach which made our restaurant stops a wash.

I’m joining in with Mary at Little Red House for Mosaic Monday.
