A Haven from Winter in Winter Haven, Fl.

Our vacation here in central Florida has been very nice. And while our neighbors up north in the Finger Lakes region of Upstate New York are anxiously waiting on spring to come, we have been spoiled with lots of bright clear blue skies and ideal temperatures for us – just a sweater in the morning but that is all that is needed.

We found a newly opened restaurant in Winter Haven that reminds us so much of what we like about the Finger Lakes region during the summer months: being able to eat right out along the water.

Frank & Manny’s Harborside Restaurant in Winter Haven was busy last Friday night with folks who were hungry for really good seafood and wanted to just unwind from the day’s labors. Jeanette and I split a crab cake dinner and there was plenty of food for the both of us. It was good!

The restaurant has a dock in behind on Lake Shipp and if you are into boating, you can tie up your boat behind the restaurant. No one cane to the restaurant by boat – perhaps it was just a little cool for boating. The beach behind the restaurant has been nicely groomed and several of the local birds were hard at work looking for their dinner.
