On the way home from Flourishes and Camas last Saturday my dear friend and I stopped for lunch. When we first started out, early in the morning, she told me that she had a special place in mind for lunch. And she was right! We stopped in Vancouver at Beaches Restaurant - on the north banks of the Columbia River, just across from Portland. The sign out front lets you know that this isn't an ordinary place. Once inside we were greeted by staff and seated beside a window were we could enjoy the view.The menu and a long list of lunch specials made it hard to decide what to order. The food was wonderful. Our choices were just right. And we enjoyed the chance to relax and talk over our day. A visit to the ladies' room is a must. The walls and ceiling are covered with incredible art. This little gal welcomes you to take a last peek in the mirror before you head out the door again.
It almost seems as if the sink and counter are right on the beach.
And outside, the sidewalk along the edge of the river bank provides unlimited views of the river and Portland on the other side. Across the river. . .And to the west.This was the perfect way to end our day together. A day filled with friendship and treasures. And memories. Lots of memories. I want to return here again. With my sweetheart. And my camera. On a sunny day. And lots of time to wander.
