Betsy and I just got back from a week at the beach.  We stay at a wonderful inn in Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina, but we head to Calabash, North Carolina, each evening for dinner.

Calabash is a fishing village that calls itself the ‘Seafood Capital of the World’.  I’m not about to argue with that description.  Calabash seafood is delicious, and there are several restaurants right along the docks where the fishing boats come in.  You can buy fresh seafood right off the boat, or enjoy a meal at a restaurant as you watch the boats coming in.

The photo above shows some Calabash shrimp and scallops.  It’s definitely worth the trip from Tennessee to enjoy these yummies.

    STOP! I’m salivating … that plate of food looks heavenly, although any self-respecting Aussie calls a shrimp a ‘prawn’!

  2. lronglim Says:

    Very inviting scenery, and and that plate of goodies, looks inviting too…

    Beautiful pictures and the food looks delicious!

    It looks as if you had perfect weather for your beach getaway. I’m not big on seafood, so that part wouldn’t tempt me. But I love the beach and the waves and the beauty of it all that you capture so nicely in your photos.

  8. Mary Says:

    a week at the beach sounds good! That food looks wonderful!

  9. Ginny Hartzler Says:

    i love those ship masts and the bright blue sky! I guess I have never tasted extremely fresh seafood, it must be awesome!!! The closest I ever get is picking up a fresh salmon at the grocery store, By then I am sure it is at least four days old.

  10. Denise Says:

    Hi George, that sounds like another lovely trip you and Betsy took. The seafood looks so yummy! Have a great day!

  11. Larry Says:

    In my younger days, trips to Myrtle Beach with the kids were pretty frequent and aat least one dinner in Calabash was a must.

  12. dayphoto Says:

    It looks like your weather was perfect…no wind, rain or huge nasty storms!

  14. Ms. A Says:

    That’s a whopping plate of scallops! Yum!

  15. Rose Says:

    I would love just sitting there watching the boats….Roger would love the food!

  16. rhiebert Says:

    The setting alone sounds worth the trip.I am not a great sea food lover,but when it is fresh,I might be persuaded to like it.

  17. MaryBeth Says:

    Yummy indeed!!! Of course the west side of Washington also calls itself the Seafood capital of all over. LOL Bob and I just had garlic Prawns at a Greek restaurant here–Very yummy also. My granddaughter Kylee invited us (and her Mom) out for lunch on Mother’s day—Of course you know who get to pay. We love her anyway. hahaha!!
    Sounds like your week away was ever so fun. MB

    Wonderful photos from Your trip.

  20. Ginny Hartzler Says:

    I love the second picture of the fishing boat. The first one seems to be a yacht of some kind. Gosh, buying it right off the boat!!!

  21. Andrea Says:

    Oh wow, those plates of seafood are certainly a special treat here in your blog. I love anything seafood, and scallops are rare to find here and expensive, so I am so envious.

  22. Lorri Says:

    What beautiful photographs, so serene looking. Those scallops and shrimp are making me drool.

  23. Carletta Says:

    This pictures look like you had wonderful weather for your trip. I love the coast of North Carolina.
    AND, I shouldn’t be looking at this plate of food as it is past midnight here and too late to eat. 🙂

  24. Neal Says:

    I’ll have to admit that the plate of seafood looks delicious even if I am not a big fan of scallops. Looks yummy.
