|A view of Grand Traverse Bay from the Shores|
We stayed in on Friday night, since I had to wake up early for the marathon. On Saturday afternoon, after a few hours of post-marathon recovery, we drove up the eastern shore of the Old Mission Peninsula, so I could show my wife and kids the views I saw while running.

I ordered my first post-marathon beer, and our waiter also brought out bread with a pesto dip. The pesto is made with olives, giving it a different taste, but we liked it so much we asked for more. We also ordered the delectable beer cheese fondue, which comes with a pretzel braid. For dinner, my wife, Allison, had the Baja Tacos, and I ordered the Apache Burger with sweet potato fries. The sweet potato fries came with an incredible syrupy pecan dip that made the fries taste like french toast. They also have a great kids menu, and our daughters loved the burger and chicken tenders.
