My husband and I love to walk to the little quaint shopping and restaurant area near our home. It is about a five minute walk from our house to the shops and waterfront where our sailboat is moored. Sometimes, we like to stop and grab a cup of coffee to take to our boat.
This coffee shop is a popular local gathering place in our little Norwegian town. There is always people from the marina there reading the newspaper and sipping on coffee or young folks playing games at one of their many tables. At the back of the shop, they have a nice comfy seating area and a small fireplace. Great place to sip your coffee and read when the weather is cool here.
I like the look of the burlap coffee bags and the posters that decorate the coffee shop...
The barristas are friendly and love to get to know the local folks. My husband and I usually order a non-fat white chocolate mocha. They use a sugar-free Godiva white chocolate in the drink. It is delicious and a treat for me.
With the weather beginning to turn more springlike, we will be going to our boat a lot more often. We have a 25 ft. Catalina sailboat with a nice comfy cabin area. My husband LOVES to spend the night on the boat. Sometimes, we just walk down and enjoy a pretty sunset from the cockpit with a cup of coffee or glass of wine. You always have your own waterfront property when you have a sailboat. Fun to spend time on....even when you are not sailing out on the bay.
Here is the first picture I made of my husband sailing "Skye, the Lillie-James" in Seattle on the day we bought our sailboat. You can see the joy in his face. That joy has never left him. He adores our sailboat, and it gives me pleasure to see him so happy on the water. My dad, who had a lifelong passion for boating and fishing, would have loved that...
So, as I sip my coffee, this morning.... I want to wish you a very special day today. What brings joy to your heart? Whatever that is, I hope that your day is filled with everything that makes you happy. Much love... xoxo Kim
