October 10, 2011 Columbus Day (continued)
We went into Marblehead – the colonial homes and shops are lovely. No one was around. It was as if they’d rolled up the sidewalk at 5 pm. We ended up at The Landing Restaurant, right on the water. It has a fun pub, an elegant dining room with windows on three sides, and a deck. We sat in the dining room right next to the deck.
We shared an incredible meal gazing out over the harbor at sunset!
special clam/corn chowder
scallops wrapped in bacon with maple dipping sauce
peking ravioli with ginger slaw
a caesar salad
My Baked Stuffed Shrimp Mediterranean (stuffed with a spinach, feta and pignoli-nut filling, wrapped in bacon, in a pool of red pepper coulis with sweet potato gnocchi and steamed asparagus)
Hubby’s Asian red snapper encrusted with sesame seeds on top of pad thai
choco-tini: dark chocolate mousse and iced brownie slices
We made it home in less than an hour by 9 pm. There was so little traffic I wondered if life had been called off and no one told us? It is so odd to come down Rte 1 in Lynn and be the only car on either side of the road!
