The Landings Leftovers

The Landings Had the nicest setting of the three restaurants we've visited so far. The Harbor is quaint. The owner picked it up three years ago after wanting to invest in a marina in the Ozarks or Puerto Rica.

The bartender we talked with was Miss Teen Illinois in 2004. Rebecca Hall says she went to Disney as a finalist and told she could become a model if she lost another 20 pounds. And she only weighed 112 at the time.

They didn't want us to talk about the support hanging from the rafters. But that was one of the reasons we came. A sales guy told me about the late night fun at The Landings.

There is a small hotel next door for boaters who want a shower and a bed on dry land.

They plan on doing some extensive remodeling at The Landings. We may have to go back and see if the bras are part of the new look. I hope so! That makes it a unique spot to visit.
