Ivar’s Seafood Bar and Lunch on the Waterfront

It’s another gorgeous day in Seattle, hitting around 87°F/29°C, blue skies, not a cloud in sight, a day everyone heads for the beach.

My Mom LOVES the beach.

“How about if I pick up lunch and we eat on the beach?” I ask her, and she agrees almost before I ask. “But I don’t need a big lunch,” she adds, “only two pieces of fish and no fries, I’ll just eat a couple of yours.”

I hardly ever order fish and chips. I almost never order fries. How could she know me for so long and not know that?

After running my errands, I hit the Ivar’s Seafood Bar and order – two orders of fish and chips.

The restrooms:


I remembered to take a photo of the fish and chips before the fish was entirely gone 🙂


I picked up Mom and we drove to the waterfront, scoring rock-star parking and a park bench with a view that went forever, right off the beach and watching the Edmonds ferry come in and out of the dock:




And then we went home and waited for Mom’s new red chair to be delivered, which it was, and it is beautiful!

  3. Purgatory – You cannot imagine how clean and fresh it was, and so warm, without being hot. Soon – we are off for a stay at the beach!

    Mickey, yes, blessed! It was wonderful!
