Date Night In Wrightsville Beach

This afternoon, Matt and I went on a dinghy ride to pick up some seafood from the local seafood shop in Wrightsville Beach. We stopped in at Motts Channel Seafood, which had a great selection of seafood and local produce. Matt and I are very adament about trying to eat fresh seafood and not something that has been previously frozen. I guess living on the water, you become particular about things like these! We got a pound of shrimp to have for dinner in the upcoming days and headed on to Dockside Restaurant for some appetizers.

At Dockside, Matt ordered onion rings and I ordered blue crab and corn chowder, both of which were delicious! We sat on the porch outside and enjoyed watching the stand-up paddleboarders and boaters that passed by. After finishing up our appetizers, we headed back to the boat  to relax for a bit, get some things done around the boat and then go to dinner at Tower 7. While we were getting stuff done around the boat, Matt noticed that there were about 25 people on stand-up paddleboards going back and forth racing right along the channel! It was quite the sight to see so many people trying to maneuver the paddleboards and progress in their attempt to win the race!

Around 9 p.m., we headed in to town to have dinner at Tower 7, a Baja-Mex restaurant. With a slogan like, “live.eat.surf”, we knew we were in the right place. Tower 7 is conveniently located right next to the beach and serves everything from nachos and chile rellenos to quesadillas, fajitas, burritos and tacos. With great music playing in the background, Matt and I enjoyed chips with homemade salsa and mouth-watering burritos! A great way to end our time in Wrightsville Beach!
