Another lovely start of the day.
I understand we’d better enjoy it because after tomorrow we are in for some heavy, wet spring snow. Ack! Well perhaps it will miss us, but the weather folks are saying we could get up to 15 inches here with blizzard conditions.
Anyway, good time to share a little more about our FL vacation.
One of the things we did while at Beverly Beach is venture off to see:
The Ponce de Leon Inlet Light is a lighthouse and museum located at Ponce de León Inlet in Central Florida. At 175 feet in height, it is the tallest lighthouse in the state and one of the tallest in the United States. Nope didn’t walk to the top, not crazy about heights.
By the Lighthouse was:
Beautiful area, relaxed and casual.
But even better…found this little jewel:
And Hidden it was!
It’s the building back at the back of the parking lot for the lighthouse, and is, as we found out by going in, on the waterfront.
It is very casual, not at all fancy and just kind of sucks you in. Of course the first question was, do you do Gluten free? (me being a Celiac it is SO important) The answer is yes and they were not kidding.
So simple and so yummy. Fish, coleslaw on top…with a little Swiss cheese to hold it down. I love pickles and corn on the cob as well. It was perfect. We both enjoyed the food.
My drink…keeping it simple. It was almost like having a picnic by the water.
And though we had a lot of ‘friends’ joining us, they didn’t even give us a glance. Every pole ended up having a Pelican, or occasional other water birds, flying in to hang out in the sun.
They would groom themselves endlessly and just take a break.
I will say, I didn’t see this sign when I sat down….
or I might have chosen a different spot. I have kind of a reputation regarding my head being a target for birds passing over. I’ve had birds ‘hit (poop)’ me through the sun roof of my car. The sun roof wasn’t even ‘directly’ over my head. BUT nothing happened except good food and entertainment.
At Hidden Treasure Rum Bar & Grill they have a very unique weather station and it is really very accurate:
It was a fun spot and I will go back anytime we are in the area, I might pick a different table…. 😉
