My family lives to eat

Vacations in my family are usually centered around food. Weeks before hand we scope out the best restaurants and plan out activities around eating. This year my family spent three days at Kings Mill Resort in Williamsburg Virginia. It's a huge place. There was an indoor and outdoor pool, a gym, a spa, tennis courts, 63 holes of golf and lots of water sports to participate in on the James River. Most importantly there were 5 restaurants on premises. The when we first got there we immediately went to eat at the club house. I had a delicious salmon burger with lettuce, tomato, sprouts, and tarragon mayo. I also had a side of Dijon potato salad which was amazing. Sadly I don't have a picture, but trust me it was pretty.

This was the view from our table

That night for dinner we had the pleasure of eating at the marina restaurant. We ate out on a deck overlooking the James and we were seated at a half circle counter around a fire pit. I had grilled swordfish with mango relish, cucumber and dill salad, and steak fries. It was amazing. My aunt enjoyed crab legs and my brother had rib fingers with coleslaw.

Lunch on Thursday was from Regatta's at the resort. They're famous for their pizza that's baked in a wood fired oven. We ordered one margarita pizza and one pizza called the godfather which had sausage, pepperonis, onions, mushrooms, and peppers. They were delicious. The crust was thin and crispy and perfect. The wood fired oven had given it just the right amount of smoky flavor. Sadly there isn't a picture because I was too busy stuffing my face. I'm really looking forward to next year so I can further explore Kings Mill culinary offerings.
