|The best clam chowdah evah on a cold, rainy Saturday!|
If I had been smarter, I would have charged the camera battery Friday night so that I would have been able to get more than one photo inside the restaurant. Thankfully, we had the other camera with the zoom lens in the car all ready for other shots so we weren't completely without a camera for the rest of the day.
The character of Petey's is perfect. It was clean and tastefully decorated. There were lots of interesting items on the wall to look at while we waited. It was not "touristy", by any means although tourists were clearly welcome. The food was amazing. The service was impeccable. Thanks, Phil! The atmosphere was warm and inviting. It was a wonderful visit.
We shared the cup of clam chowder in the photo above as an appetizer. That won't happen again. It was clear that we each needed our own
gallon cup of this wonderful stuff. I have no words for how wonderful this chowder was. It was creamy and buttery like a good chowder should be but not thick like a cream of anything soup. It was full of yummy fresh clams, chunks of potato and with the addition of the oyster crackers, it was absolute perfection. In addition to the chowder, we ordered the lobster pie and a lobster roll to share. Again, I cannot begin to even describe how wonderful this food was. It tasted so fresh and delicious. We ♥ Petey's and will definitely be going back....and will definitely be taking our vacationing guests when the come to visit....and will most probably be taking off for the seacoast and Petey's when we are craving clam chowder.
The waves were pretty strong along the coast on Saturday. The wind was blowing the rain sideways and it was seriously cold. We did chance getting out of the car a few times for photos and then we saw these people out enjoying the day.....or trying to, at least. We parked and watched for awhile.
We did manage to see one of them catch a small wave and ride it to shore. I'm sorry we didn't get it photographed. For the most part, while we were watching, they were struggling just to get out in the water at all. It seemed a little futile to me but they were obviously having fun. I cannot even imagine how cold that water was.
If money were no object, I would call this home...
The rocky coastline lived up to my expectations even though the weather did not. We don't have a lot of coastline; but, what we do have, is beautiful. I can't wait to visit again this summer. It is so nice to live someplace where I can travel in virtually any direction and find something scenic. The mountains and the ocean are close by.
I'm loving my new life.
It is, also, interesting to note how different the culture is in other parts of the country than I am accustomed to seeing in Louisiana. One of the places that we found along the way and DID NOT visit was this....
Some things are much better not shared.....
like my nekkid body. ☺
Like my stepdad said...
It gives a whole new meaning to "hanging out".
Thanks so much for stopping by to see me. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend with your friends and family. Make it a great week!
