Marc and I drove around the neighborhood and ended up on River Road:
We drove by Chrystal Lake’s north side
Now River Road.
There is the area’s newest B&B
The Benzie Grand
And then we were back on M-22 looking straight at a humongous, dead tree that had been cut down
I used to sell Alpaca – things made from Alpaca wool. Have I told you that already? I managed a store in Germany that sold everything Alpaca. Dreamy coats and the most beautiful wraps, tops and throws. Anyway, so today coming back from shopping in Benzonia, the Alpaca were out at
Crystal Lake Alpaca Farm
on River Road. They enjoyed the sunshine see:
They were busy grazing and had their heads down, so I whistled and some heads snapped up 🙂
These guys look so cuddly, one could just run over there and pick one up to take home .
What lazy lives they have. Eat, drink, get a haircut now and then…And then I went home and made dinner – beef stew with biscuits! Cooked it for hours with some really good stuff in it. Yumm
Most of you know that the Coho Cafe is one of my very favorite restaurants in this area. We love what they offer, we love the location, the set up, the food. It’s not pretentious only delicious. For an appetizer I had the scallops with orange salsa, followed by seared yellow tail tuna, which they left “un-seared” for me. I don’t like cooked fish too much. Everything was scrumptious. Mike had a steak with smashed potatoes which he loved. Our friend Jan had the special which was some fish wrapped and steamed in grape leaves, she loved it. Kathy had the duck and she enjoyed that very much. For desert Kathy and I each had the chocolate bread pudding. Yummmmm…
As usual, my greedy self forgot to take pictures of the food. I can assure you it was all good 😉
Below, the restaurant as seen from my seat. Looking towards the bar. See the 3 boys in the picture? They were part of a group of 7 kids and one adult. The adult was from Australia, he had his son with him and 6 of his friends, who all live in Singapore. The Australian had come here to visit friends a few days ago, loved it so much, he bought a house on Crystal Lake. Must be nice to turn around and buy a property for a million dollars or more as a vacation home. I can only dream.
Jan, Mike and Kathy (I am not sure why I had such a hard time getting a good picture of Jan, she made all kinds of faces all night long, heehee) I have a really bad one which I shall keep in my photo library for use at a later date 😉
Main Street facing east. Pretty busy already.
In short, do not miss eating lunch or dinner at the Coho Cafe’. They don’t have a website but who cares. Their menu is wonderful, the service is wonderful, the food is wonderful and the drinks are outstanding.
It is located in downtown Frankfort, across the street from Moomers ice
cream shop and next to the Book Store!
