1 Down; 12 to Go

stumpknockersWe accomplished the first mission of the 13 for 13. Admittedly, it was the easiest to accomplish, but I can’t remember how many years we’ve said we were going to go to Stumpknockers for dinner. And then when John added “eat stone crabs” to the list, Stumpknockers seemed like the logical place to make this happen.

Of course, we wanted to arrive before dark so we could enjoy eating overlooking the river so we left shortly after 5:00. We arrived well before dark so we could see the river while eating; however, it was so windy we decided not to eat on the deck overlooking the river. Instead we settled for the porch which provided some shelter.gatorstumpbar

Since I’m not a fan of stone crabs, I ordered the catfish dinner and John ordered his stone crabs which he thoroughly enjoyed.  The portion was generous and with soup, a baked potato, and corn-on-the-cob it was quite a meal. We decided to really splurge and ordered a piece of key lime pie for dessert – quite a meal! I don’t think it will take years for a return visit making it unnecessary for stone crabs to appear on another must do list in the future.stonecrabsj
