It was very quiet there – almost like a different restaurant! We had four-top in the middle of the room, and were very moderate in our ordering. I had “The Trainer” breakfast – 1 egg, 1 piece of bacon, 1 sausage, 1 piece of french toast, home fries and a side of kielbasa! Hubby enjoyed the “Beefcake” with 6 oz filet mignon, 2 eggs, home fries and a grilled English muffin.
I had my first ever cup of watermelon gazpacho! I also ate some of Hubby’s lobster corn chowder.. We shared the corn fritters with remoulade sauce. He had the ahi tuna. He gave me half his corn on the cob and his watermelon slice. I had the hot buttered lobster roll. I ate the sweet fresh lobster claw meat but not the roll.
We were about half way through our entrees when the skies opened up with a massive thunderstorm. The waitress led us inside and downstairs to a table inside. We finished our food and stuck around until it was down to a drizzle then made a run for the car.

from my private journal
I got my right hand henna’d. Chris (a guy) painstakingly drew a free-hand design of circles and vines and dots.
We checked out the “2 for $10” t-shirt shop but didn’t find anything, and considered a boat cruise but decided against it because it was very hot and sunny, and we’d have to wait outside and broil before the next boat.
We had a great view of the harbor and the lake and the mountains! We had a charming waitress named Savannah. Hubby ordered the French Onion soup and an colorful concoction called “Mexico Seafood Cocktail” which was a spicy ceviche with brightly colored chips served in a parfait glass!
I had the classic clam chowder – one of the most delicious creamy renditions I’ve ever tasted!
My entree was a fabulous pasta with gemelli, garlic shrimp. chorizo and mozzarella in a dill butter sauce!
We were charmed by a couple from South Carolina at the next table who were on a bus tour. She sat down and declared a beautiful drawl, “I’m going to have a Co-cola and then I’m going to get a real drink!’ She savored a beautiful glass of rose.
The waiter brought out a tray of the desserts to tempt you mightily, but I resisted!
Hubby took a nap while I got on to the wifi easily, uploaded and captioned photos. The one thing I don’t like about this region is the lack of cell phone towers. I had no connectivity all day! Ugh.
We took off exploring the hotel, talked to the ducks at the beach and checked out the gazebo bar, then went through the tunnel to the main building to find the pool. It has the biggest jacuzzi I’ve ever seen – an elevated square that could seat 12 people!
Happy Flash Fiction Friday! It’s time once again to check out the photo Advizor54 posted to inspire us to write a short sexy something to share. Pop over to his blog to see what he and other salacious sexy bloggers saw and leave comments! My take is below. Enjoy!
