Since I haven’t posted my son’s cat lately, this seemed like the perfect challenge. If you’ve looked at my blog before, you’ll know that Kush the cat LOVES to get into things. Here she is inside a suitcase (helping me pack) and inside a stack of bowls which I foolishly left sitting empty on the table. Obviously that was a perfect nap spot.

Personally I think they are coasting on their reputation (note the dates on their numerous awards). Next door is a “fast food” version of the restaurant, El Parasol, which I will definitely try next time, as the outdoor eating area was packed with locals. Guess I should have known.

  1. Love the tree. I have a thing for trees. We like to find ones with big “gnome holes” in them. I’d love to find one growing in a restaurant, well, a big one like that!

    say meeow! i.;e I did something bad.She died a few years ago.I miss her very much.


  3. Redford’s restaurant at Sundance also has a tree growing in the dining room… at least it did when we used to go there back in the 80s. Can’t imagine what that would do to the roof.
