Hello again from vacation at Smith Mountain Lake with our friends Tim and Lindsey!
Last night was so much fun. We went to dinner via boat!
One of Tim and Lindsey’s favorite local restaurants is called The Landing and they suggested we go there last night for dinner. The most fun thing about it? You get there by water!
The weather could not have been more perfect — perfect temperature, gorgeous sunshine. Such a nice night for a boat ride!
Lindsey was our fearless captain:
While Tim enjoyed the ride :)
And so did we!
I love boats :)
10 minutes later, we arrived at the restaurant! Straight ahead in the photo below are the “parking spots” :)
Parking success! Here I am with the beautiful Lindsey :)
We decided to wait at the bar for a table outside — the weather was too amazing to pass up. And so was this view:
While we waited, we ordered some appetizers and drinks. First up: a delicious tuna tartare with a spicy sauce and grilled corn and avocado. So good!
Plus some conch and lobster fritters. Major yum!
We enjoyed the rest of our dinner outside (at a 4 person table, obviously, not the one below… heh):
I had an unpictured beet and goat cheese salad (I can’t resist ordering this when I see it!) and for my entree, the lamb:
Delicious! Matt, Tim, and Lindsey all had the steak, which was also delicious. Of course I had a bite :)
After dinner, we headed back on the boat in the dark! It was really peaceful to be out on the water at night — and the moon was really cool looking, too — HUGE, low, and orange.
What a wonderful evening. We had another fun filled day of water sports today at the lake and are getting ready to make dinner here at the house tonight — I’ll be back tomorrow with another recap! Matt and I are heading home around mid-morning tomorrow, we think. Back to Chapel Hill after many weeks away!
I was just handed a glass of wine so I think that’s my cue to say good night! Have a good one :)
