I had to start this post with a photo of one of the most amazing meals I have had in Apalachicola. This is crab cake Benedict with fresh fruit and cheese grits. Look at those eggs, they were poached and so perfectly, so light and fluffy.
We've been meaning to eat at The Owl for a long long time but were always put off by what we thought were high prices. It's actually quite reasonable for the quality and quantity of food you are served.
This is the staircase leading up to the restaurant. Beautiful.
Here is the board with daily specials. Now I can tell you, I was mighty tempted to get Pot Roast but I thought it would be too heavy. Anyone who knows me knows if my tummy is too full, I will fall asleep on the back of the trike. I have been falling asleep on two and now three-wheeled vehicles for quite some time. The Sportster, The Road Glide, the Road King and now the Tri-Glide.
The sky was very blue and clear last Saturday. We like wandering down by the water after we eat, looking at boats and birds. See this yacht? It's for sale. No price listed.
We walked around some more, intending to gte a dessert of coffee but we were just too full from lunch. I wish I had brought a hat, the sun was very bright.
About 2:00 we headed home and yes, I did fall sleep a few times. We stopped at the Piggly Wiggley grocery store in Apalachicola before departing to pick up some hot sauce. I can't find it in any of the stores around the Tallahassee area so we stocked up.
It was roughly 160 miles roundtrip.
That's what we did last weekend. Hoping for a good ride this upcoming weekend too but Lizzie, our granddaughter, will be celebrating her second birthday so we will see what works out with parties and such.
Hope all is well in your world!
