To Flea, or Getaway.....that is the question.....
Saturday had four, count them, four World Cup games on tap, plus the U.S. Open going on all day long, but we are in one of the premier 4 season resort areas in the world, so sitting in front of a TV all day on such a beautiful day was out of the question. This time of year there is a flea market open every Saturday and Sunday of the summer just a couple of miles from TVC*, so after watching the first soccer match of the day we rode our bicycles over to see what we might find that we couldn't live without.
We left for the flea market around 11 with the temps still in the low 60's arriving at our destination by 11:20, paid our $2 entry fee ($1 per person) and began to browse. After walking through the various isles twice I settled on a used Acushnet Bullseye putter, almost identical to one I owned 20+ years ago for $4......I know, I already have 2 other putters, but this is the one I have been looking for. TLE bought some fresh produce....apricots, zuccini and tomatoes.
By this time it was close to 12:30, so we decided to continue our ride on up to Meyers to have lunch at the Getaway Cafe, which gets a solid 4.5 stars from Yelp on 177 reviews. We were not disappointed.....I had the Caesar Salad and TLE the Pastrami Ruben. Both entrees were excellent, plus the outdoor dining area is delightful....we will be back.
From there we headed home to take in the balance of the FIFA World Cup matches slated for the afternoon. I had planned to sit outside watching soccer, but with the slight overcast we had it was just too cold, so I spent about an hour in the trailer cleaning up my "new" putter.
As the weather warms the campground gets much busier, and with that the Verizon broadband slows down considerably......hopefully by Monday it will be back to normal again as the weekenders head for home.
Thanks for stopping by!
