Ramblings Again


This past week my neighbor and I went to Lee's Ford Marina and ate at the Harbour Restaurant. It's a very pretty place. They are allowed to sell booze now so they have remodeled and added a bar and it's really snazzy. The best part is you can eat inside or outside and get a great look at the marina and the lake. They have some big houseboats there. The waitress told us that last year there was a yacht there that was a $4 million dollar one. Imagine that! I'd like to have toured that one, or better yet stayed on it for a couple of weeks. Ha! Fat chance of that. Gee, I wondered who owned it???

My food was not very good. Way too much salt on my burger. I should have sent it back, but I wasn't very hungry. Last time I ate there I got penne pasta with Alfredo sauce and shrimp. Now that was so yummy! This time I got a burger and chips. I even took a picture.

Next time I'll send it back if they get too happy with the salt shaker.

We stopped to look at townhouses they are building on the edge of the hill overlooking the lake very near there. I wanted to see the view from the back. They have already sold two of them. The asking price is $349,000. They have a basement and then 2 stories with 2 decks out back. Here is a picture taken from the second level deck.

Nice view! That is a bridge with some traffic, but not like an interstate or anything, so probably not too bad noise wise.

Well there you go. Cut loose with some of your cash Rachel and you'll have a room with a view.

Very pretty, but expensive! We live in rural midwest Kanss, -- the prices of homes, apartments, living places, just astonish me. I just can't imagine having to pay what some people do. We are quite happy in our little nest.

(I would have sent it back.:)

I loved the pictures. That is a really nice view of the water. When you go near the water order sea food!

Hugs and have a wonderful day!

The hamburger and chips picture confused me. If you get chips here with a burger they are french fries. We call them chips.

The house sounds great. Expensive but great view..

That burger looks good; too bad it was too salty.
I like that view.
I could enjoy sipping on a cold drink and looking out over that water.

That really is a nice view from the townhouse and I too would have loved to tour that million dollar X4... boat.

Looks like such a nice place to have lunch or dinner. We ate at a similar place in FL. Loved sitting next to the water and smelling that fresh air. I love being near a lake. Couldn't afford to live on one though.

Very nice views, Rachel! I thought that LI, NY was the only place that townhouses were tTHAT expensive! Sorry for the stutter there, I am still amazed at the cost. Next time you go out to eat, send the salty burger back!
