Love vacationing in Sea Isle City, New Jersey. On the bay, there are a number of great seafood restaurants. Two of my favorites are Mike’s and Marie’s. Mike’s is a great hang out. We love to order big take-out pans of steamed clams in a butter/lemon/wine sauce. Or, we’ll bring some beers, order some broiled seafood, and hang out on their deck. Marie’s is much the same – love their fried scallops – best I’ve had anywhere – when we order a to-go bucket, it’s usually half gone by the time we get back to our place. My daughter and I took the reference photo for this painting from a side street pier across from the backs of the restaurants. Particularly like that we were able to capture the famous Sea Isle water tower (“Smile – You’re In Sea Isle City”) in the background.
