Beautiful Lunch

(winter shot of the dining deck)

My husband and I had lunch today with the lovely Reya of The Gold Puppy. She and her friend, Dave joined us at the Sunnyside Restaurant for a lakeside lunch. It was so wonderful to finally meet her! Of course, not being a great photographer, I forgot my camera in my excitement. So no pictures. But I will say that she is very pretty, in a very wholesome way, exactly as she is on her blog. (Come to think of it all the Aquarius women I have known have been pretty.) She's as nice and as soulful as her blog portrays her to be. I know I will see her again someday, she's that kind of person - you want to see her again.

Nice restaurant. Made me want seafood. Happy to know that meeting a fellow blogger was a good experience. I guess after reading each others blogs we all feel like we know each other. I guess we do!

JC said...

Wow ... you actually met each other.
That is so cool !!!

Trish and Rob MacGregor said...

Another Internet/blog synchronicity! How cool is that?

Lily said...

Super! I have a couple of blogging sisters that I'm planning on meeting in the next month. I'm sure it will be a happy event!

linda said...

I think I've been there before...it looks very familiar!

as always, it's so lovely up there with that very blue sky.

Nancy said...

Kathy - You pick up with each other as if you've know each other for eons.

JC - It was very cool!

Trish & Rob - Between meeting you and Reya, I feel so grateful, to meet such wonderful spirits. I'm blessed.

Lily - Be sure and tell us about it.

linda - Today was very blue - blue water, blue sky - a perfect day. The Sunnyside has been there for many years, I'm not surprised you might have visited if you came to the South end of the Lake.

What a nice experience, and a great compliment you paid her.

Natalie said...

Oh you Lucky Ducky!! How cool for you both.xx♥

Brian Miller said...

wow. nice restaurant...always nice to meet up with fellow bloggers as well and see the people behind the comments...have a great Sunday!

DJan said...

I found a couple bloggers who live in my city, and the other day I was at a garage sale and I wondered if it could be... but no, it wasn't. I am an old lady and they both have small children, so it's not likely we will meet unless we make an effort. But you did, Lily will, I should, shouldn't I?

I would like to meet my blogger friends some day, to see the face and hear the voice. In the meantime, we write.

How cool for you and Reya. I did, once, meet a glass artist I had corresponded with for months and it was like seeing a long lost friend.

Jo said...

Isn't it fun to meet a fellow blogger?

That looks like a wonderful restaurant.

Celeste Maia said...

How fun to physically meet another blogger! And the restaurant on the lake looks very inviting. What food did you have? Trout?

The Good Cook said...

What a beautiful spot for lunch and meeting up with a blogger "soul mate"..

I have often wondered what it would be like to meet a fellow blogger / follower... perhaps one day if the stars align.

Nancy said...

Jarie - She's a great person.

Natalie - It was very cool. But I can only speak for myself, of course.

Brian - The restaurant is good, the company great, and the lake magnificient.

DJ - Absolutely! I was lucky in that the MacGregors were vacationing at Hood River at the same time we were in Portland for our daughter's graduation. And Reya was here in Tahoe visiting friends. Synchronicity!

Ellen - Reya is like a long lost friend, as well. I think she would be like that to many people.

Jo - I can't help but remember your story about the blogger friend...

Celeste - We had salads and fish & chips. You would think trout would be on the menu with that great big, deep, icy cold lake right in front of us, wouldn't you?

Good Cook - They may very well align.

I have met in person several of my online friends. Never once have they been anything less than wonderful. :)

(The picture is beautiful!)

Rain said...

Oh how much fun that you two met! I'd love to meet some of my blogger friend in person!!! That photo makes me long for winter!

Lori ann said...

This is great news Nancy! I am so glad Reya made it safely and you were able to meet. It sounds lovely and I'm sure Reya brought her camera?

AL said...

You are so lucky to meet one of your fellow bloggers, I have always wanted to meet an online friend. You think all Aquarians are beautiful...perhaps my Mom is one of them.

BTW I would like to thank you for dropping by my blog I really appreciate it.

Al - I'll bet your Mom is one of them. You have a great blog.

Expat - Thanks for the lovely compliment. I think we need to plan a blogger party somewhere...

Oh, how wonderful to meet up in the flesh like that! It sounds as though a firm friendship has developed, isn't the internet a wonderful thing?

Phoebe Miriah Kirby said...

Meeting a blog friend in real life!!!
I'm envious! :)

I'm so glad you were able to meet her in person.
