Peace River Seafood Restaurant

November 08, 2016  •  1 Comment

The Peace River Plein Air Painting group was invited to visit this unique restaurant and since Barbara Archer Baldwin is a member of that group, I took this opportunity to get some photos of this old and interesting landmark.  The Manager, Larry Corbin said the site was once a nursery and that many of the plantings and trees had remained form that time.  The buildings have been re-purposed into the restaurant and the rooms are decorated with colorful old Florida sea life, plus lots of dollar bills from the hundreds of customers over the years.

Mexican Petunia's at the entrance way.

A white Bird of Paradise is in full bloom.

A large pond makes an early morning reflection but the resident alligator didn't show!

They have a large outdoor covered patio for comfortable dining.

This cell tower is actually on the property behind the restaurant, but the Eagle and Crows gave us a show this morning.  I used my super telephoto lens to get this far away shot.  I can't believe workers climb up there to service the many modules attached at the top!

 

 

The Seafood is fresh,  There is evidence of lots of fishing equipment around.

 Today's catch is Mullet that are being prepared for smoking.

A most interesting tree is the Sausage Tree from Africa that actually has long hanging blossoms and big heavy fruit shaped like...well sausages.

We offer our Thank You to Larry and his staff for making our visit a pleasant and productive one.  We will be back to taste some of that fresh seafood and to enjoy this unique Florida Treasure.  Best Regards,  John and Barbara Baldwin

GREAT photos John. It was a beautiful day, and I even did an acceptable little plein air painting!
