Lunch In Manteo.

Mr. Hawthorne and I stopped at a restaurant in Manteo for lunch. We started out with the house salad with Bleu Cheese Dressing.

Now, I know Glowria wants to know about the Pork/Nacho plate. Mr. Hawthorne liked it. Me, not so much. The homemade nachos were deep-fried and good, but I didn't care for the pork. The whole thing was waaaaaay to heavy for my tastes.

I had the fried jalapeno poppers. Now this was good. They were filled with a chipotle/cream cheese/poblano filling and were served on a bed of baby greens and diced peppers and pineapple with a mango habanero sauce.

Very tasty.

How long has it been since
you've seen one of these?

$10 bucks.

After lunch, Mr. Hawthorne and I went over to Roanoke Island Festival Park. The park, unfortunately, was closed, but we stopped on the bridge
so I could get this picture of the Elizabeth II.
This is a reproduction of one of the seven original sailing ships which brought
Sir Walter Raleigh and the colonists here in 1587.

Funny story. Years ago, my sister and her husband
came down to visit.

I suggested they take their kids over to Manteo
to see the Elizabeth II.
Brother-in-law was very excited about this since

he thought I was talking about the QE II.

I think Brother-in-law Hawthorne was a bit disappointed.



He actually thought the QE II was berthed in a Manteo harbor.
