lunch on the river





I met my friend Diane for lunch at Scott's on the River, a lovely, cool spot along the Sacramento River. We sat outside on the terrace and, along with a delicious meal, solved all of the problems we could think of.   Di is a semi-retired travel agent whose passport probably has some of those extra pages all covered with stamps from exotic places.  She recently went to Cuba and I wanted to hear all about it.  Next stops on her itinerary:  France, then Burma, then the Northwest Passage.  She gets around.


But to the menu.  She had a bowl of Summer Vegetables soup, and even though this is a seafood spot, I had a hamburger, medium rare and perfect. We shared some sweet potato fries and both had a glass of our favorite, Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand.   A lovely catch-up lunch.
