Ray's Boathouse Cafe is surely a little slice of heaven. Scrumptious food, generous beverages, blissed out guests, and a panoramic view of an active Puget Sound, backed by the dramatic horizon of the Olympic Mountains.
Soaring eagles, curious harbor seals, and a never ending procession of working and pleasure boats all compete with conversation and cuisine for attention. Really, I couldn't make this up.
This entry could easily be categorized as "Travel" - it's only 5.6 miles away, but we always feel like we're on vacation when we go there. Or, it could have been "Periphery" because, even though we all share a Seattle address, it's Ballard that deserves bragging rights for Ray's, not Belltown.
