No Title ?

Here we were, Roxie and I.  Lee (of Roger and Lee) is playing Tin Can Tourists again- we were alone and up for some fun, muahahahaaaa.
So the idea was to go to Traverse City and have lunch on Front Street at the
Red Ginger
You are correct, that’s right across the street from
Phil’s on Front
!
Lee, Roxie and I had been there before for lunch about 3 weeks ago and Roxie wanted more…

Friday morning, we left Frankfort around 10 am and got to the parking garage at 10:45.
The walk from there to our destination was shortish…The restaurant opens at 11:00 –
Let’s just say that we were a little too eager to get seated for the Red Ginger people, we were there at 10:57!
They were very kind but we could tell that we were EARLY.
As you can see from the picture, it is apparent that we were the first guests that day, heehee.
This did not bother us one bit, because we were only interested in their
unbelievable sushi and war-wonton soup!  and we got it!!

After lunch, we had to get dessert at none other than
Jaques Torres
Oh gosh, they do have some nice stuff there.
I love that coffee bar but I can never make the girls want to sit there.
All they are looking for is a piece of chocolate or two and run after their next venue.

I used to love watching Jaques on the Food Network make his chocolate creations a few years ago

Everywhere you look – nothing but chocolates. Mmmmm good.

Here’s a tip for you, click on most of the pictures in any post and get a larger image, it’s nice to see the details!

The Betsie River

After shopping for groceries on Sunday, I pulled off to the side of River Road to take a good look at the River.

Still no signs of spring here. But still pretty

Can you see the fisherman on the left and right?
3 guys enjoying the torture of worms on a sunny Sunday 🙂

Here’s some nice, blue sky for ya 🙂

The Elberta Waterfront Park

There are some interesting things to be seen. I have no idea what some of them are but, if I could, I’d take them and put them in the backyard. Here, look for yourself

First, the refurbished Lifesaving Station. I took that picture from the porch of the Trick Dog Gallery, which is not open for business yet.

The Lifesaving Station can be rented for events like weddings and family reunions.  There’s a beautiful kitchen for catering

Things sticking out of the ground – that could hurt if anyone is strolling through the area in the dark 😉

This contraption is a leftover from the times when the car ferry was still in business. It was used to unload cars?

What do you say to that?  Pretty nice for the first day of spring, huh?
