On Saturday morning we enjoyed the most delicious cheese, bacon and tomato frittata and although I did not get the recipe from Bonnie, I post a similar one on the recipes page.
We spent the afternoon on a “surfers” beach and it was fun watching those kahunas ride the waves. I often wished I could surf, but I’m clumsy so adding a surfboard would make for quite a calamity! When we got back to the B&B, we had a treat waiting for us… the best homemade chocolate chip cookies and freshly-brewed iced tea. Later, we strolled the Boardwalk and made our annual pilgrimage to our favorite jewelry store, Terry Ivory, where I purchased this lovely necklace from Holly Yashi called “Gypsy Bloom."
The next day was my birthday and I started the day with a run (thought I was going to pass out…it was already 90° at 7:30 in the morning). After I took a shower and recuperated, I had coffee on the cozy porch and watched a Red Finch feed her babies that were safely tucked away in a porch fern nest.
Sister and mother joined us later that morning for a trip to Uncle Bill's Pancake House where I feasted on my favorite, buckwheat pancakes, YUM! In the early evening, we sat on the porch and watched a pretty intense storm, complete with wizard-of-ozesque roof shingles flying all over the place.....very exciting! We decided to stay put and to have a picnic dinner in our room with a $9 bottle of screw-top wine and Italian take-out from a little place at 9th & West called Voltaco's.
A delightful weekend.
