Taste of Tellico

This was probably only our fourth time to Tennessee to visit my parents "retirement home" (place of retirement?) in Tellico Village, but we've enjoyed it every time. This trip was shorter than the rest since we got there around dinner time and had to catch an early morning flight out of Knoxville the next day, but we made the most of it.

We had a choice for dinner destinations and decided on a new restaurant that my parents have tried out and proclaimed delicious. They were right!

Key Largo Grille is one of the many places that sits by the water overlooking one of Tennessee's largest marinas just above Ft. Loudon Dam. We dined on the deck outside, and while the sun was hot and the humidity much higher than we're now used to, the breeze and the company made it very nice.

Though they have a lot of tempting seafood items on the menu, I ordered the Black and Bleu steak salad (is there a theme this weekend?) which was fantastic! It was actually a whole blackened steak on top of a salad.

We all split a couple of Key Lime Pie slices for dessert. I think next time I'll get my own :)

After dinner, we drove around the area looking at homes in the waterfront neighborhoods and enjoying the scenery. 

We also visited a golf course that my parents help to maintain (and where The Boy is going to receive golf lessons while he is visiting).

The next morning came much too quickly and we packed our bags, said our goodbyes and headed back to Denver.
