06.23.19-Sunday-South Beach Fish Market
Sundays are very much like Saturdays. The script has been reenacted on so many Sundays in our past, very much like many other families. A little shopping at Walmart then munch our way through the day with a nice but simple dinner to end the evening. Today was very much like all the Sundays of our past with a little twist at the end of the day. As I’ve mentioned a few times the last couple of weeks, we’re not exactly in the heart of Newport. In Newport is where you can easily find Wi-Fi and, most of all, cell phone availability. No, we’re about eight miles south of Newport over where many of the well know beaches can be found, like South Beach and Nye Beach. Today, however, we’re facing a count-down to Wednesday morning when we will depart this area and go to Pacific City. We’ve mentioned in the past we adhere, as much as possible, to a very simple and inexpensive lifestyle, but occasionally you have to do something different.
On each trip into town we travel past the South Beach Fish Market, I actually thought the name of the place was the Crab House do the outdoor billboards on the building. So today we decided to experience this roadside fish eatery. There are people waiting to enter all day long, so after a couple of games of Kings Corner we left the coach around 4pm to go eat. We no sooner got to the Ocean Highway didn’t the car begin to handle funny, something was wrong. I got out and sure enough we had another flat. This was the second flat in two weeks. My brother Dennis, as he does each year, renews his and our membership to AAA. We hadn’t had the last flat fixed so now we had to rely on the donut tire. AAA estimated a one-hour wait and as promised he arrived in one hour. He had us up and going in twenty minutes.
The next stop would be the Fish Market. This is one of those eateries visible to everyone but whose reputation is best know to only the locals. It’s not very impressive, but what a menu. All the fish is fresh. Halibut, Shrimp, Chinook King Salmon, Prawns, Scallops, Tuna and Wild Fish, served in so many combinations you must allow an extra twenty minutes time to study the menu. Carla enjoyed Halibut and Scallops, which I help her eat and I partook of Calamari and Onion Rings. Our meals were awesome. Torty minutes later we were slowly driving our crippled car back to the campground. Needless to say, tires will be our primary objective tomorrow morning especially since we’re leaving on Wednesday.
