Three Things Thursday

Thanks to Nerd in the Brain  for the weekly challenge Three Things Thursday:

three things that make me smile: an exercise in gratitude – feel free to steal this idea with wild abandon and fill your blog with the happy


Earlier this month the Lunch Bunch traveled to:

Verrazanos Italian Restaurant
28835 Pacific Hwy S
Federal Way, WA 98003

The subtitle of the restaurant’s web site is “Fine dining with a view!” And they aren’t kidding. The dining room offers a beautiful view of Poverty Bay and the Olympic Mountains.

We visited on a sunny day, and the snow-capped Olympic Mountains were visible when we arrived:

While we were ordering, a truck from a local tree service arrived and caught our attention. We watched as the truck got into position and hoisted a man up into one of the trees. He worked there during most of our dinner, directed by a fellow on the restaurant’s large outdoor deck:

2. During

One of the members of our group asked the waiter what was happening, and she explained that the restaurant owners had hired the company to come out and improve the view. By time we finished eating, the man in the tree had done just that:

I thought the view was spectacular before the tree trimming, but I didn’t complain about the opportunity to see even more of those beautiful mountains.
