Lunch is Served

Fact is fact - there just aren't that many places to eat in Wewa. Well, I take that back. There are places to eat, but the nearest fast food joint is about 25 minutes away. The only recognizable place to eat in town is Subway. Any other restaurant is, shall we say, indigenous to Wewa.

Let's see. There's the Lighthouse, a converted gas station now serving seafood baskets, sandwiches, and other fare, including gator tail. There's the Bayou, otherwise known as the "Bi-O," as some are prone to pronounce it. Closed, open, closed, open - I haven't been yet, but I hear it is pretty good. There's the Dixie Dandy, also affectionately known as the Dirty Dandy, offering all sorts of fried goodies and acting as a convenience/gas station of sorts. It is also one of the more interesting buildings in town as far as architecture is concerned. There's the Express Lane, which is the other gas station in town, that apparently has amazing milkshakes, the kind you buy and have the machine shake up. We tried to go for some about a week ago and the guys who went in to get them came out only to report that the man inside said, "Well, when I checked yesterday, we were out." Hmm, you'd think he would check THAT day to make sure...

There is also a smattering of other places to eat, mostly small, very much local eateries, some we would like to try, some we may skip but, you never know. In a future post I'll try to include photos of some of the above mentioned restaurants. Here is one:

This is RD's. It is a trailer just outside of town where you can go to get hamburgers, hotdogs, bbq sandwiches, fish sandwiches, chicken sandwiches, great greasy fries, onion rings, and all the sweet tea you can drink. This is where we ate today, outside sitting at a picnic table in the warm February sun. It might not be McDonald's or Wendy's, but it is pretty good and you'll walk away full.

Just one other thing for today:

A dryer full of baby socks. Is there anything much cuter than that?

Today I am thankful my husband suggested going for lunch. It was a nice surprise!

Yes! I do know of one thing cuter than a dryer of baby socks. It is the sweet feet that wear those little socks. :) Can't wait to see Addie's sweet baby feet.

Putting those socks on the sweet little feet. It will be fun, but she sure has a lot for a "we" one. Especially living in Florida.:)
