Fashion Island is a up scale shopping center for the rich and famous. It is off of Pacific Coast Highway setting on a hill. The view is spectacular looking at the Pacific Ocean. The restaurant is on the second floor so you can see the ocean from each table.
The bar area of the restaurant - great views
We had a delicious lunch of Lettuce Chicken Wraps, Hot & Sour Soup, Honey Shrimp and PF Chang's Spicy Chicken with Brown Rice. For dessert we had Banana Egg Rolls with Vanilla Ice Cream.
Can you tell that we didn't like the dessert LOL
We were so full that we had decided to go to Rogers Gardens about a mile down the road.
We needed to walk and I was hanging on the cart (more on that later).
Being a gardener I am always interested in seeing what's new in the garden world. I was not disappointed. Here a few of the shots from there. But oh were they expensive. Their living wreaths were so pretty.
This tree is right after you go into the gardens. In the winter they have a little train running around the tree with houses and villages. Very pretty. Now of course it's beautiful flowers.
Here I am hanging on to the cart.
By this time my hip was killing me as I had pulled my muscle by my stomach that runs down your leg. And, I had left my cane in the car and was walking with the garden cart. I was scared to death that I had somehow injured my hip. The Doctor said no, it probably was the pick, that you were using in the garden while planting flowers.
Well, I got scolded by the Doctor and my son. So I am in the dog house LOL. Believe me I will not ever do that again. By the time I got home, plus I was the driver, I was ready for bed.
So I felt so bad this morning that I skipped mass and thought I would take it easy. Well, you know me, I never want to miss anything. My girl friend and I jumped in the car and took off for Anaheim to the Red Robin Restaurant just down the street from Disneyland.
Again, another delicious lunch as it was to darn hot to cook. Do you have a Red Robin Restaurant where you live? They are so much fun and have such great food. Their hamburgers are to die for. So guess what, I am back dieting again as I do not want to put any weight back on and not being able to walk - no exercising.
More of my garden ...
This iris is considered a black one, as it is very dark purple.
My giant sunflower, compliments of the birds.
My butterscotch Iris
Can you see who is waiting for their dinner. They look like they are starved..... LOL
Hope you liked my weekend tours of Orange County and trying to stay cool and not cook.
We hope you will leave your comments, as Waldo, Lili (my garden assistance's) and I loved reading them.
