Beach Stop

June25

Life is different these days and I am coming to understand that the journey is as lovely as the destination-and so it is even for our short drive to the cottage on the weekends.  Instead of racing to the cottage door, we have acquired a new stop along the way –the Sandbar Motor Inn at Grand Beach.

They have nightly food specials to attract people to their bar and Friday nights are steak night.  A nice little sirloin, perfectly cooked to medium rare with cole slaw (vinegary-just the way I like it), grilled garlic toast, a baked potato and get this-a glass of red wine (or a beer) all for $9.95!  The place was hopping when we arrived at about 7.  The weather forecast predicted a rainy weekend-I can’t imagine how busy they’d been had the sun been shining!  They had already sold 200 steaks.

We found a spot next to the window by the great looking patio.  Since it was just the two of us and we were seated at a long table, we invited others to join us as fewer and fewer seats were open.  This is the way that I discovered that you could substitute a chicken breast for a steak.  My neighbour’s dinner looked wonderful and I think I’ll make that choice next time.

As a result of this lovely stop, we didn’t have to cook and better yet-wash dishes upon arrival at the cottage, we just unloaded the car and set up the DVD player to get caught up on our viewing of LOST.  Don’t worry, we got a lot of time in the great outdoors as well.
