I was saddened to read in a new book about the Maine-New Brunswick "Imaginary Line" by Jacques Poitras that the Petersens have passed away. The author suggests the stress put on them by the US Border Patrol by not allowing them to have any visitors hastened their death.
heh, funny! Very old school looking technology :D
Thanks for taking this pix....I was sitting on a bench at the front of this market and an elderly fellow sat opposite me and asked "Are you waiting for a table ?".. "No, we have a puppy in the truck, so I'm waiting for my wife" I replied. "Well, you should go get him and bring him in". .... "I can't do that". He then told me he was the owner and yes I could. This is a cool place, basically a market / restaurant, overlooking the river, with the boats moored right beside you. Tables are set up right on the covered dock. The owner joined us for a chat and no one seemed concerned about the dog. After our meal, we bought 2 lbs of stone crab claws, and the owner gave us another 1/2 of cracked claws, no charge. Think he really liked the dog... Just a nice place to eat and relax, nothing fancy.
WOW... if this is the Islamorada Fish Co. it has sure changed since our last visit, 1986, and 1999. We remember a gravel parking lot, about 6 picnic tables on the dock, no bar, but if you had your own beer in the car, bring it in and they would keep it cold in the cooler for you. Stone crab claw dinner for 2, about $22 and on occasion, free key lime pie. The server would walk around with a big chalkboard, that was the menu... it was so much fun. Went back in '99, a bar on the dock now and dinner was $65....Don't think it would be that much fun any more. Sure looks impressive though.
