One of the things I said I wanted on my Summer Vacation To-Do list is to travel – a wee trip to parts nearby – or plan more extensive travel – a large trip to parts unseen – for later in the year.
I checked the former off my list this week by taking a two-day trip to a nearby Great Lake! We were able to stay in an amazing hotel that was literally right on the water.
Although I immediately recognized the bread as Udi’s, my favorite brand to buy at the grocery store, they did something to it that made it indescribably amazing. When I got near the end and was getting a little to full, I actually picked all the bread off and ate it, leaving some chicken salad behind. Now THAT is a mark of wonderful bread!
They also had a flourless chocolate torte, which came with handmade whipped cream.
And less than 20 minutes away were a variety of lovely beaches. They were sandy in parts and stony in parts, but I got to spend plenty of time laying out on my towel reading.
