Vacationwiches, Part 1

My brother invited us to join his family at a cottage on Prince Edward Island this summer. All we had to do was get to Boston and ride up there with them. We considered our options and decided to drive to Boston since it would save a little money and we could bring our bikes.
What I didn’t know was that we would be able to revisit some of the places Beth biked through last summer on her cross country tour. We made it to Conneaut, OH just in time for an early lunch at the White Turkey Drive-in. The White Turkey was a beacon of joy in Beth’s long slog along the shore of Lake Erie. The signature sandwich features perfectly juicy chopped roasted turkey. I opted for the Large Marge which adds a slice of American cheese and some bacon. (My lifetime love of Pee Wee’s Big Adventure may have influenced my decision as well.)
The Large Marge was excellent. The turkey was perfect--juicy, just salty enough, full of turkey flavor. The cheese and the bacon added the right amount of savoriness. And the soft white bun had flecks of salt on it. Yum! To top it off, they serve delicious root beer in frosty mugs. A beacon of joy, indeed.
