La Galeria Restaurant located in the Marina of Cabo San Lucas serves local style food so, we ordered the special, which was filet mignon, lobster, sea bass and shrimp with vegetables. Our chef prepped the shrimp at the table and shared the recipe as he cooked; using chunks of butter, lots of garlic, chili’s and tequila. I love the use of tequila as a seasoning to enhance flavors or as an afternoon sip.
Their edible flowers and herbs are grown in areas tucked around the restaurant. And, the band played at bit of rhythm and blues to country music in a most creative style.

This weekend was spent exploring the gardens on the Hillwood Estate in upper northwest Washington, and to see the varying gardens with greenhouses set on 25 acres that sit adjacent to Rock Creek Park are breathtakingly inspiring. For an entire day we were able to see what prominent landscape architects Umberto Innocenti and Richard Webel were able to do in capturing the vision of Marjorie Merriweather Post in 1950’s.
Their formal gardens extend from the house’s terraces and porches in a progression called “outdoor rooms”. Each area compliments the mansion’s interior spaces or design if you will so, as you stroll the grounds you see beauty all year long.
