Learn a new skill or practice an old one, shuck your own oysters. The bbq were the best. Bueatiful bay, nice lunch/snack spot, but it's pricey. Had a wonderful time on a bueatiful day---not so much if rainy

This was a perfect appetizer on the way to Roche Harbour. Stop in for a few of these little gems which by the way are NOT little. Stunning atmosphere, cute outdoor tables near the water and fresh oysters. Life is good here.
