steamers, originally uploaded by sheakey.

This photo is not really about Ian...but in a way it is. Before Shea and I were married we would ride our bikes here and have a coffee on Fridays afterwork. That was 12 years ago. Since then we've taken family and friends and Ian. It wasn't a great place. The service was bad. The food was okay. The coffee was okay. But so many memories connected to it. I remember watching tourists walk by with Shea. Drinking tea there with my Aunt and my Mom. I recall spending time there with my inlaws when Ian was just tiny. And so many great talks with Shea about our future.

And today I discovered it has closed. So sad.

oh, sorry to hear it closed down. When I go to Brazil I find so many places don't exist anymore, I get sad with these things, but life goes on, right?

Ian's photo in the previous post is AMAZING, that is what I call "light spot :) his eyes are just gorgeous! When I grow up I want to take photos like you LOL

That's so sad! This reminds me of the time when we noticed that the resto where my husband and I had our first date closed. We just had to stop our car, stare at the resto and tried to find signs that they were just renovating. A few weeks later, the building was demolished.

I'm sure you have fond memories and times to treasure. It looks like it was a beautiful place.
