We have been promising Adam a trip to Mount Scott and lunch at Meers....voted by Bon Appetit Magazine, Food Network, Travelocity, and numerous other groups as one of the best hamburgers in America. They use lean, grass fed beef. I agree....a terrific hamburger. That's what we did this afternoon. The building is old, has a lot of history....
We had to wait in a bit of a line. Similar to waiting for a ride at a theme park. The line wrapped around the "store" on an uneven floor. Very charming. ;-)
We didn't have to wait to long. It was all worth it. Adam thoroughly enjoyed his 1/2 pound burger and fried pickles.
Lucey passed out on our way up the mountain.
The day was beautiful, sunny and 75 degrees. The sunset was pretty....but, as we arrived at the top of Mount Scott the wind was gusting. The car was shaking like I have never felt before. I decided to stay in the car with the sleeping beauty. The guys got out but stayed away from the edge. I was happy about that. Then one of the tourist's motorcycles blew over. His helmet, gloves and glasses went flying over the edge of the mountain. It took three big guys to pick up his bike. I felt so bad for him. In town the wind has been gusting to 45 MPH....I'm sure it was stronger at the peak. Lucey would have been blown away. I'm so glad we stayed put. The guys only lasted 5 minutes or so and we headed home.
We watched Winnie The Pooh with Lucey and enjoyed Key Lime Pie. Then a kiss for Daddy and a Happy New Year wish and off to bed. With Lucey in bed we are enjoying a show, Sherlock, a modern day Sherlock Holmes. This British series aired on the BBC in 2010. It is clever and keeping us entertained. The second set of 3 is scheduled to premier tomorrow. We can't wait!
So with that....I hope you are having a wonderful New Year's Eve with the ones you love.
See you next year!
