Another Great Dinner at Oliver’s Harbor!

Oliver’s has been in our dining rotation since opening, though we don’t always get there as often as we might prefer (lots of great places have a spot in the rotation!). We had dinner last night and it was outstanding. Again. I feel as though it’s a little bit underrated but we nearly always run into someone we know there so perhaps not underrated among locals. Thanks Scott for great service and stellar lemon drops. The ribeye was perfectly done, the veggies cooked just right. Jim had one of the specials: a lamb burger. He loved it. It was a pleasant evening, as always. Thanks Oliver’s! Located on Main Street with outdoor and indoor seating. Shoutout to Giovanna!

Beautiful Boulevard

The tulips on the boulevard are always gorgeous, but the clouds and rays of light above them caught my eye last night while sitting in ballpark traffic. I love how many people I see stopping to appreciate the flowers and taking advantage of the wonderful photo opportunities.
