One of Matt's favorite places to go when he's back home is the Catfish House. Besides an incredible menu, they have an unbeatable atmosphere. The dining room has large windows that allow you to peer outside behind the restaurant where there's a beautiful field. Next to it is a quiet lake, humming with the songs of frogs. (Together they sound like a symphony, but the first time I heard the bellow of a bull frog out here, I thought there was a howling dog outside our window!)
After dinner, Matt and I were able to catch a few pictures behind the restaurant while the sun was setting. I found it hard to tear myself away from such a serene environment that would be impossible to recreate back home. Although I love the sound of waves lapping up on the beach, I've always been more drawn in by the stillness of the woods and a motionless lake.
The inside of the restaurant is just as appealing; buzzing with conversation and full of life from floor to ceiling. We had a delicious dinner and of course a great time with the family. And probably three buckets, that's right, buckets, of hushpuppies.
Is it obvious that I love it here?
