Long Island on a Sunday

by Joanne on June 21, 2010

This is how our morning began:  A treadmill run of 6.72 miles.  Yes…I was suppose to take the weekend off but since I was wide awake early, the best thing to do was to get up and run. 

Funny thing.  The treadmill in the hotel was a heck of a lot easier to run on than our treadmill at home. Why would that be? 

Healthy starts:

breakfast fruit 

melon, oranges, grapefruit and strawberries

breakfast oats

Hot oatmeal with 1 teaspoon each of craisins and raisins. Slices of a banana (half a banana) added.

I ate too much bread at dinner the night before so I went with oats instead of toast.

Breakfast omelet

For protein, I had an Egg Beater omelet with fresh vegetables, a little cheese and a small taste of home fries.

The last day of class was a complete 8 to 5:15 info packed session.  The toilet situation got worse because the Tic Toc Cafe which allowed us to use their facilities became victims of the poor plumbing situation as well.  It was a touch-and-go afternoon for sure.

Dinner in Port Jefferson:

We made our way to Port Jeff for dinner with our destination being….


Danfords Wave Restaurant. 



We could eat outside or in but curiosity got the better of us and we ate inside. Beautiful atmosphere, fun filled bar area, and excellent wait staff.  The piano player was entertaining for a short time.  He is usually outside but due to a short spell of rain, he was providing entertainment inside on this night.

The food was grand.  Shrimp cocktail to start with a delicious bread basket of pumpernickel raisin rolls, rye rolls, and sour dough.



A fresh garden salad with bleu cheese, candied walnuts, and cranberries served with a light chardonnay vinaigrette.


I chose the Tzatziki Cod with red potatoes and a side of garlic-horseradish broccoli rabe



Coffee at the bar where the conclusion of the US Open was shown on television and Ted was anxious to see who would win.  It WASN’T Tiger!


It was getting late but we took a short stroll around Port Jeff. A lot of people were out for ice cream. The chocolates caught my eye.



Now it’s Monday AM and we are heading off to breakfast and then taking off for home.  Shane is missing us and we are missing him.  

Don’t you just LOVE port cities?
