Subject: RE: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
I have often thought I would like to travel the Eastern Seaboard of the US in search of the AMAZING seafood meal deals friends and relatives have spoken about. Of course, if I really wanted to chow down on the best there is, well... here are the directions... take the ferry to Port-aux-Basques, NF, turn right, follow the sign to Margaree BUT ya gotta call first (used ta hafta, anyway) ta find out if the restaurant is open today and at what times. Me zon, me zon, me zon! I mind back in about 95 when a decent seafood platter would run $20 here. In Margaree, $8 and buddy, she was some shockin good! Lots of er in a Captain's Platter... salmon or halibut, cod or haddock, tongues n cheeks, scallops, shrimp, fish cakes. And fresh? Keep yer peepers peeled ona way downa winding road and ya'll see the holding ponds. They pump seawater inta the ponds where they keep the catches until shipping and from which the restaurant gets fresh fish daily... when they are open. Never better an I have eaten seafood from Boston to Nain, Labrador. (Footnote... seals come from the sea but they are not seafood and they taste like ****!)
