We went for a quick bite after our long walk at the bay. We ordered fish and chips and found that the fish was very greasy. Mostly batter and very little fish. The fries were good.

The plan was to cycle from Hamilton Beach to Burlington and to stop at Hutch’s on the way back. After we parked the car, we smelled the food cooking at Hutch’s and decided to start with lunch. Yes, I know, so much for self-control. It...More
