We’ve always tried to find some interesting restaurants to eat at and even though we were entitled to a free continental breakfast at the Sherton due to our Platinum status, we decided to venture out to a place called Gazebo. Even with a GPS to guide us, it was still difficult to find this place as it’s basically in the back of a condiminium complex in a non-descript Gazebo.
We arrived at about 7:30am and there already was a lengthy line.
Standing in line gave us plenty of time to peruse the menu. The breakfast fried rice sounded interesting.
I ordered the fried rice plate with assorted meats, veggies, and scrambled eggs. The waitress cautioned me that a full order is a ton of food and that I should order the half order of fried rice instead. I’m glad I heeded her advice.
My wife ordered the macadamia nut pancakes with coconut syrup.
One word of caution, the orange juice was $3.25 and tasted like Sunny Delight. Skip that if you go. A very unique and tasty breakfast experience with in a beautiful setting.
We spent the rest of the afternoon hanging out at the pool and snorkeling around Black Rock.
That night we decided to do something a little different – go see a movie. I’ve been a huge Wes Anderson fan with one of my all time favorite movies being Rushmore. Other good movies of his were Bottle Rocket and the Royal Tenenbaums. He seemed to go off a little on the bizarre with The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou and the Darjeeling Limited but made strong comeback with The Fantastic Mr. Fox. The amount of detail that went into that movie is spectacular. Therefore I had mixed thoughts on whether Moonrise Kingdom was going to be like the Life Aquatic or Rushmore. Luckily, it was more in line with some of my favorites of his and made for an enjoyable movie, plot line, with plenty of laughs as well.
