Thursday morning report

We drove back to the Atlantic coast yesterday. The first stop was BMW Motorcycles of Orlando where I bought a couple of t-shirts. Then we went on a quest for German food. The German restaurant on A1A where I dined with Indianapolis BMW Club friends during Bike Week in 1993 is still there but they don’t serve lunch on Wednesdays.

So we asked Garmin to find us another German restaurant and it took us to a mall across from the Daytona Speedway where we finally located Mr. Dunderbak’s, a quirky little bistro that served us the toughest schnitzel I’ve ever wrestled with.

We cruised up to Palm Coast and the Byrd’s Nest Quilt Shop and some Baskin-Robbins ice cream.

The sun sets early here this time of year, so we gambled that we’d have some golden light just before sunset down at Flagler Beach. The surf was up, the kids were surfing, and the light was perfect for about 15 minutes. We each shot about 330 images and this is one of my favorites.

Returning to Orlando, we gave Garmin one more chance to find us good food and this time it came through with a Mexican restaurant called El Patron. Maria had the tacos carnitas and I had the enchilada suizas. Both were spectacular and we brought home leftovers for today’s lunch.
