Steve was off fishing and I went down to breakfast. When we are off on a fishing vacation I usually wait until Steve is out the door before I go to breakfast. Number 1 reason as he likes to get up earlier than I do. Number 2 is I don’t want to get in his way when he is doing his last minute collection of all the gear that he needs for his day. So it was down to breakfast I went. Last visit it was up to breakfast as our room was on the lower level. Since we were in “The Honeymoon Suite”, which is above the great room it was down to breakfast. On the side board fruit, juices, cereals and yogurt were laid out. On the table are lots of great pastries, some savory and some sweet. I ordered a fried egg, a blueberry pancake and bacon for my breakfast. Then it was time to see if there were any changes by the pool area. A new bocce court was installed. I have never played, so I can’t give you any feedback on that. Then it was off to the deck off the great room where I discovered new lounge chairs to sit on. Except for the “no see-ums” that love to nibble on me, it is a great place to relax and enjoy the beach view. New this year at lunch is tortilla chips and dips. Sour cream, salsa, and guacamole. The chips are those lime flavored chips. Addictive and delicious!
There were incoming guests arriving so the lunch table was a full one. Usually I am the only one non fishing and eat by myself most of the time unless there are some non-fishing spouses at Delphi. I ordered the chicken Caesar salad. Of course I ordered French fries. What’s lunch at a resort without a glass of Rosé ?
After lunch I ordered a cup of cappuccino. This is one large cappuccino! We were also given a sweet of mini banana bread muffins. Yum Yum!
Steve came back about 4 p.m. to report on his day of fishing. It was a bit slow compared to other years, he caught two. The most important part was that he caught his December fish, which brings him fishing streak to over 30 months! Here is a picture of some beautiful evening clouds. Our canapé starter was artichoke fritters.
Next up was Tuna poke on a sesame crisp.
Our appetizer was buffalo mozzarella.
I had the duo of lobster.Steve had the beef tenderloin. Dessert was a Strawberry and Hibiscus Geleé. Then it was time for pots of mint and chamomile tea and more stimulating conversation with the other guests. It was exciting to find out that two of the guests were originally from Dutchess County, where Steve and I live. One of the guests lives in the Millbrook area, about twenty miles away!
