Down The Shore
Posted 17 May 2008 - 12:18 PM
We purchased a second floor ocean front studio unit that is rented when we aren't there for some income at The Astronaut Motel. This is actually one of the few of the motels built back in the 1950's and 1960's that are left standing. One of our neighbors. Notice the faintly polynesian theme.
Many have been sold, torn down and rebuilt as $1 million dollar condos. But there is a group that is trying to preserve motels like ours called theDoo Wop Preservation Society.
This is my little corner kitchen. At the end of next year this will be replaced and expanded.
While Johnnybird was unloading the car i grabbed my sister-in-law and headed for the Acme to supply up.
Time for a reward.

When was the last time you saw one of these?
Breakfast is the first item to take care of so breakfast for 4. Scrambled eggs, toast and fried potatoes. I also had made some cranberry lemon and pumpkin raisin loaves.
While John attended our owner's meeting I took my sister-in-law, Julie, and my mother-in-law, Liz for some sightseeing. First was a visit to Sunset Beach and the home of the Cape May diamonds.
Then it was on to the gift shop for an hour and a half of buying <BIG SIGH>
Dinner was at a venerable institution down this way: The Lobster House. Unfortunately they were very adamant about NOT photographing in the restaurant and I couldn't even weasel pics with my camera phone.

Back home for dinner and I found that the old grills from last year had been replaced by two of these babies.
But not for long.
The dinner choices were cheddar burger,potato salad, green salad, grilled brats, a nice buttery mash, applesauce or a salad of tomatoes and avacados with catalina dressing.
I'm thinking there is a possibility of some really nice pork butt next year. At least Ed, our manager, thinks there should be.

and just kicked back to look out at the ocean
and shared a snort or two
Since the rest of the time was spent birding or in the rain the food was mainly sandwiches we could grab and take with us. Nothing pretty at all.

we usually get 9-12 days down in May which usually includes the World Series of Birding and our wedding anniversary. John goes down for the fall owner's meeting and takes 2-3 days in October, just before we close. Actually our unit is fully rented the months of July, August and September and most of the weekends the rest of the time. For tax purposes we cannot use it for ourselves more than 14 days or 10% of the available rental time.
With those new grills i see some fun next year at cinqo de mayo....
