Our now-favorite-restaurant, Monique’s Bistro in Blind River, was open and Monique and her husband Sam were lovely as always and served up a delicious 3-course dinner.  We passed on dessert this time as we were pleasantly full and pampered.  (See last year’s story about how we accidentally discovered this wonderful spot as part of our sailing journey stop at the Blind River Marina.  Everyone should have the opportunity for such a wonderful meal, elegantly prepared and served with grace and friendship.
