Eating at the Bridge

Hubby and I spent another relaxing weekend in West Virginia. Quite a change from last year, and the year before that, and the year before THAT when all we did was work, work, and more work.

Now, all we seem to do is sit around enjoying the cool little house we built, riding our motorcycles, and eating.

Speaking of eating... it seems like that was the highlight of our weekend.

Saturday, we hopped in the car and drove about 30 miles east to Capon Bridge, West Virginia. A small town about 20 miles west of Winchester, Virginia on US 50, Capon Bridge is home to El Puente, a yummy little Mexican restaurant. A place we didn't discover until recently that serves quite tasty Mexican food. (NOTE: As I suspected, "puente" means "bridge," which explains the drawing of a bridge incorporated into the restaurant's logo.)

Sunday morning, we made the 45-minute drive to La Vale, Maryland, a smallish town just west of Cumberland, where there are quite a few dining options. Chain restaurants, mostly. Like Bob Evans', which is where we ate. They serve up a pretty good breakfast.

Later, we hopped on the motorcycles to explore more of West Virginia's back roads. It was mid-afternoon when we ended up in Paw Paw, West Virginia. Of course, by then breakfast had worn off. When we stopped to gas-up, we noticed a little Italian sub shop place called Anthony's Jr. It looked like an okay place, so we went there for a late lunch/early dinner and had cheese-steak subs, which were really quite good. In fact, they were the best cheese-steak subs either of had had in quite a while.

That was our weekend. It makes for a pretty boring blog post, but we enjoyed ourselves nonetheless.
