Monday Feb 14 is my 29th Anniversary! Wow what a lucky and blessed man am I. The beautiful Mrs Brian and I try to get away every year for at least a couple of days. This year she asked where we should go and I mentioned the Coast; we’ve gone there often, or the Hood Canal. She reasoned that Hood Canal would be a place I could fish. She said she just wanted to relax away from home and would bring her sewing machine to use whilst I fished. I couldn’t find any inns on the water so I suggested Cady Lake Manor. After checking out the website she booked Sunday through Tuesday nights. She found out Larry provides quite a dinner menu. He’s a delightful fellow and I am looking forward to chatting with him again. I expect to leave a respectable gratuity. Although no alcohol is available he encouraged us to bring our own. We have some Riesling ice wine for chocolates, and some Syrrah to go with the 14 oz steaks he serves up for $20.
