Review: Clearwater Restaurant

  It was by complete happenstance that we stumbled upon this beautiful restaurant when we were on the hunt for dinner. We hadn’t planned to dine here, but I’m so glad we did. The atmosphere was warm and clean, the food amazing!   We were greeted by the hostess with a smile and she offered […]

Vacation

It’s been awfully quiet on the blog and for good reason – I’ve been on vacation! I took a road trip from Torrington to the west coast and have been touring my home towns for the last two weeks in the Pacific Northwest. Posts are to follow, but in the mean time here is a […]
