This past weekend I had a much needed weekend away in Ann Arbor to visit my friend Mel. After arriving on Friday and getting settled, we headed out to dinner at Isalita, a very delicious tapas style Mexican restaurant. We had a short wait where we enjoyed a delicious whiskey drink by the bar.
One of my favorites among the food ordered were the baja fish tacos, which they made look like a fish stick.
Saturday we spend the day frolicking down town, on campus and at the farmers market. Mel gave me a tour of the library, showed me the hidden door and toured me though several floors of stacks:
After indulging on Friday night, we decided we needed a lighter dinner on Saturday and make some nibble platters of pita, hummus, falafel, olives and veggies.
We enjoyed these down by the pond while watching the geese.
We decided that for having been friends for 14 years, we haven’t aged too badly.
After returning home on Sunday, Brian and I worked in the garden, rode bikes and had dinner on a patio. I even got to pick a few stems of kale.
One of the best weekends I’ve had in a long time and I even got a tan! Hello, summer! I’m ready to spend my days outdoors.
