A Morning on the Monon

Aug 04, 2009 by Hamilton County Tourism

After a fun Saturday working the 2009 US Senior Open, I took time away from the office yesterday.  I decided to make the most of my day away and took my little guy, Christopher, out to breakfast.  We went to Bub's Cafe in Carmel and nibbled on cinnamon French toast topped with strawberries and bananas.  I also had one of the most delicious Chai Lattes ever - just sweet and warm enough to make for a great morning "pick-me-up."  The day was nice and the weather was warm, so we sat on the porch.  Christopher really enjoyed sitting out there - he got to watch the walkers, runners and bikers go by on the Monon all while filling his tummy.

It was such a fun way to spend the day - a great breakfast, a shaded walk and perfect weather - I highly recommend it.
