The original restaurant (on Hwy 98 at 300 Harbor Blvd) ) opened 4 years ago...it has become so popular that a second location opened last year just down the street. We chose the original spot. I could have easily filled up on the warm home-made bread and dipping oil, but didn't stop there. The eggplant parmesan was scrumptious and I ate every bite. We usually skip desert but had been told about the tarimasu! Tarimasu is a real treat and this was the best ever...just down right sinful!
Well, what do you do after you have totally stuffed on a delicious lunch? David, Joe and I decided a walk at the harbor marina would be nice. Walking in the warm sunshine sure felt good and although, I don't think I walked off any calories, it was lots of fun!

This Great Blue Heron didn't mind I was in his space at all...I just kept snapping away!
These magnificent birds can grow up to 4 feet tall. I am barely 5 feet tall, so to me that's a BIG bird! Its wing span is nearly 6 feet as an adult.
I did ask Joe if we could have one of these for when we don't want to travel on land anymore...he just laughed!
The Pelicans were sure enjoying the day! They obviously like the marina too.
Pelicans are fascinating. Although they are among the heaviest of flying birds, they are relatively light for their apparent bulk because of air pockets in the skeleton and beneath the skin.
I sure enjoyed my photo shoot with them today.
We sure had a wonderful day. No supper for us tonight.
Thanks for stopping by.
Until next time, take care...
and enjoy your view!
