Tuesday February 16 Continued

We made it back to Melbourne in time to meet Travelin Man's friends and coworkers for dinner at
Bonefish Willy's



a seafood restaurant with a nice waterview
 

and nautical motif



I started out with the gumbo



and we shared a crabcake appetizer with a remoulade sauce




Talk about deja vu, this reminded me of the same crabcake I shared with my (ex) girlfriend 6 weeks later at Tavern By The Sea here in Wicford RI.  Let's just say this ain't Maryland....

For my main course, I ordered the Cobia Special - obviously a local fish since I never heard of it before....



The fish was prepared with a pesto based sauce. The fish itself was excellent, it reminded me of swordfish, however I should have realized I'm not  a fan of pesto. In my fantasty world, this fish would have been perfect had it been prepared jerk style with a papaya based salsa- but that's in my perfect world

For dessert  I had the Key Lime Pie



It was good, but different from Saltwater Cowboy's version which I preferred over this one

However someone, I can't remember who, had an even better apple pie




After dinner we ended up going to a multi tap beer bar before calling it a night..


Wednesday February 17

The last day of the trip. I got up early, packed my belongings and went back to No Frills Coffee House and then we had one last stop before I was to head back to the airport.




Old Spanish Sugar Mill Grill and Griddlehouse
about 90 minutes away in De Leon Springs.

DeLeon Springs is a state park containing a huge natural sulphur spring which maintains a temperature in the 70's all year round



This was where local Floridians would go for vacation before the Mouse made his entrance unto the world

There was at least a 30 or 45 minute wait when we entered the Restaurant



So we walked around the park and checked the place out






The unique thing about this place is that  you are seated at a table with a built in griddle and you request your toppings and are given raw batter



There are two pitchers  of pancake  batter provided- multi grain and white flour




Syrup, Molasses and Honey were also brought to the table




Here are my pancakes on the griddle- and that's peanut butter and bananas on the pancakes

And the finished product


 

Multi Grain

and




white flour.

I preferred the white flour pancakes. They weren't the best pancakes I ever had, but I certainly wouldn't kick them out of bed either!

After breakfast we walked around a bit- and checked out the park museum and took a short walk on one of the nature paths
where we encountered a 500 year old tree...



Aftewards it was just over an hour to the Orlando Airport after a non stop flight....I was home...
