Sunday in Benicia for Breakfast

Sunday morning DH said lets go to Benicia for breakfast...We ate here!
I ordered the bagel with everything, which was a freshly baked warm toasted sesame seed bagel, with cream cheese, delicious smoked salmon, tomatoes, cucumbers, red onions, capers and dill!
After we ate we walked by the water, taking to sea gulls, egrets, geese, wrens, ducks, and each other. A sweet time standing on the pier looking out on Mt. Tam, seeing Sierra Mts. in the distance covered in snow, soaking in the sun and wild flowers, watching the water, rocks and small waves.
From there we went to a few art galleries, talked to the artists in residence, visited an antique shop; saw a red 1957 Chevy like my dads yellow one of that era; and after a few hours got in the car and came home.
A sweet day.
I went to the second of four Soulcollage (circle R trademark)
classes in the late afternoon and will post about that tomorrow. Stay tuned.
Sunday was also Mike of Jazz, Blues, Bridge 'n Stuff
birthday! Happy Birthday Mike.
I took this photo just for you.
