What to eat at the beach

Moclips is so tiny that we have to bring in everything. There’s no cell phone service, no gas station, no grocery store, no espresso stand. So I plan our meals carefully, creating a big spread sheet of what to bring from home and what to buy fresh. The house we rent has a grill and fully equipped kitchens. We grilled fish, chicken and lamb; baked challah from scratch; enjoyed home-made chicken soup.

We splurge for one dinner and go to the Ocean Crest Resort. Since there were six of us this time, we basically ate our way through about half the menu:

Alaskan King Crab legs, split lengthways and served with melted butter and sprinkled with thyme
Green salad with chevre cheese
Baked brie en croute served with candied nuts and fruit confit
Duck with maple sauce
Rack of lamb
Prime rib
Filet mignon
Black cod with duxelles
Chocolate silk cake
Cherry pie

And since we were celebrating a birthday, our waiter took a photo of all of us and printed it on a card. What a great souvenir of a terrific vacation!
