The Outing Part 2: Lunch

Now that the fish and ducks were full of bread it was our turn to eat.
Sorry little fella none left for you.
(this little guy is for Jenny and Roy!)First we had to stop to take pictures of last years Hydrangea left overs.Well, when the name of the restaurant is Pizza and Wine what else is there to do......but go with the flow.This was the best pizza either of us had ever had. Debi...what was on here? I wasn't paying attention. But I remember one of the names...Mona Lisa.After our wine we reflected for a few minutes......then Elvis showed up to take a bow...Thank you...thank you very much.The park was full of beautiful trees and walkways.Lamp posts......and some dark, beautiful Magnolias.Places to sit......with a view.Then we found "The Declaration of Independence on a large rock......signed by some of my favorite people......and guarded by an eternal flame.Next a little History.

Oh Eve, I sure wish I were there too. What great photos! I'm loving the leaves and flowers. The park is beautiful to. Heck, Elvis ain't half bad either! LOL!

I agree, what great pictures and you certainly can't beat finding a "Flying Elvis!" :-)

Bird Girl said...

You two had a great time and I'm so glad you have a blogger buddy to hang out with and have wine and pizza (and do a little birding in between ;-) Elvis taking a bow was a riot!

Eve, I love that shot of the metal park bench and the shot with the wine glass and whatever those round thingys are is perfect! Great post!

Still a bit windy and chilly up here, but you day looked great. Yup, that looks like good pizza.

Eve, I'm actually online for a bit on hubby's computer. Your photos look so familiar - LOL! I'm craving those marinated olives again. The ingredients of that outstandingly yummy Mona Lisa pizza was arugula, pears, bacon and pecans and ... feta or gorgonzola cheese - just olive oil base. No sauce. We were in heaven. Oh, and the arugula had been "wilted," probably in olive oil, or that's what we suspected. I still talk about that lunch!!! Okay, off to work on my office. Man, I'm missing my computer!

Thanks for the 'sprog' photo Evie, strangely we could do with them over here! (-: I'm having that pizza when I come over, definitely! Love that Hydrangea photo and those olives look scrumptious (I would nab all the green ones) (-:

Wonderful post! I hope you boxed up that little sparrow....and a 100 of his friends and shipped them off to Jenny and Roy :-) Love Elvis! LOL! I think those Muscovy ducks are the ugliest things I've seen. I saw some in Nashville.

That Elvis is talented! (He also looks like he could be in a Matrix movie w/ those kind of moves!)
Great photos Eve!
