Gifts From the Sea...

One of the greatest gifts we've had while at the beach house this October is a beautiful Indian summer, today our tempeture was 75 degrees and sunny! Perfect for supper by the sea.
We'll watch the sunset while chef (me) prepares tonight's menu...homemade Clam Chowder, crusty French bread fresh from the oven and a crisp Oregon Chardonnay.
Won't you come join us for another Tablescape Thursday hosted by

Your table for four is ready with a stunning ocean view...
 even the finest restaurants would have a difficult time beating this view...





 I love the picture below for two reasons; (click on the picture) and look close you'll see the reflection of the wine glass in the center window, toasting the sunset and two, look to the left and you'll see Jonathon L. Seagull...the unexpected dinner guest:)

  3. Spectacular! There is nothing, nothing, nothing like the sea. My book club is reading that book next month. (Short for the busy holiday month) I read it years ago, but I'll never forget it.
