The Albatross Boat Restaurant

Today we went to Wells Next The Sea a cute little Norfolk seaside town and ate on a Dutch boat dating back to 1899!, its still sea faring. My sister in law was raving about the pancakes and I must say the food was good, simple, fresh and very tasty. A must visit if your in the area.

Mushroom and garlic omelet

mushroom and pesto pancake

Dutch apple and cinnamon pancake

Local fishermen getting their cages together to catch lobster and crayfish, they said they make a good living from it and the brown crabs are in season

    One of my favorite seaside towns is Leland, Michigan even though the "sea" is Lake Michigan is has all the charm of a small fishing town. The canal at the harbor is lined with smokehouses ready to sell you wonderful smoked fish and such. And a winery across the way where you can taste some of the best Michigan wines.

  7. The word Albatross always makes me think of Monty Python! :) Looks like your are having a wonderful time.
