Ever since moving away from the coast (Maine and California) to the Midwest, I’ve missed being by the water. (This may have some impact on the travel locales I visit as well.) Then I discovered a little treasure nestled into my neighboring city that let me feel a little more at home. Every time I visit the Marina Grog and Galley in Lake Lotawana I think, “why don’t I come here more often?” The setting is perfect – whether for a beer and an appetizer on the deck or some fine dining inside – to enjoy the view and get away for a little while. We went there this weekend and I finally remembered to take photos to share with you.
|We had the calamari and the artichoke/crab dip with our beers (which are cheap – $3-6/bottle). Also, if you go, you have to order the chocolate lava cake at the beginning so you can enjoy it at the end, so good!|
|Sitting underneath the umbrellas, looking at the sun set over the trees and the dock floating in the water – I’m not sure it gets much better than that. Oh yeah, it was 72 degrees too, just perfect.|
|I forgot my camera so the first two photos were from my phone and Brian took this one with his phone. |
|I saw this boat coming into the dock and switched over to my retro camera app, which I love, and snapped this final photo. Thanks for checking in. Hope your week is adventure-filled!|
