The Flow goes to Manistee
Rick and I had a plan for the evening which was to have dinner here in Ludington at a restaurant where you can watch the carferry come in while you dine. We thought we'd go early and then maybe go watch the ferry unload afterward. I called for reservations, but someone had rented it out for a wedding reception so it was closed to the public. Dang. Okay. "I choose to live in Easy World where everything is easy." No sweat.
Then we decided it would be fun to go on down to the local brewpub for a couple of pints and some good food (love their beer and their food), but discovered there was a street fair thing for bikers going on downtown and that the roads were blocked off, making it impossible to get to the brewpub. Double dang. Again, "I choose to live in Easy World where everything is easy." Must be the night for something else, we reluctantly decided. So then we thought about another restaurant and headed that way, but before we got there, decided, instead, to try going to another brewpub--this one, in Manistee--which is about 30 miles away. When we passed the other restaurant we'd thought of on our way out of town, it was closed, too! Noooooo problem. We'd already ruled that out anyway.
So we drove to Manistee, through the beautiful countryside, and found the brewpub--except it was no longer a brewpub, but a restaurant named "Tuscan Grill," which had taken its place! Argh...hearts (mouths) had been set on a good craft beer. But, hey-- "I choose to live in Easy World where everything is easy." So we decided to go on in and continue with The Flow.
Turned out to have great food, great wine, great service, great people-watching, and it was just perfect! Afterward, we went down the street to the city park to look out at Lake Michigan and the beginning of sunset, and then we headed back to Ludington where we stopped at House of Flavors (ice cream) before coming back to the cottage. It was the perfect Saturday night date! I'm SO glad we just trusted the Universe and went with The Flow. It's the only way to go--if you want to have fun and not be terminally disappointed, that is!
