The town of Calabash, North Carolina, is primarily a fishing village which bills itself as “The Seafood Capital of the World”. Shrimp boats dock daily during the season, and boats for charters and deep sea fishing also dock there.
The town is famous for its ‘Calabash Seafood’. This type of flavoring originated in Calabash and is said to be unique. I used to live in Little River, South Carolina, which is about five miles from Calabash. When I lived there, I had many fabulous meals in Calabash. Betsy and I usually have several meals in Calabash when we visit the beach in the Spring.
When we were at the beach in December (a first for us) two of our favorite restaurants were closed for the season. But the restaurant above, The Boundary House Restaurant, was open. The Boundary House is a relatively new restaurant named after an inn that straddled the North Carolina – South Carolina state line prior to the Civil War.

The Boundary House is associated with a gift shop, Callahan’s of Calabash. One part of Callahan’s is dedicated to Christmas decorations. I captured this photo of St. Nick’s Nacks under a full moon after our meal at the Boundary House.

Calabash was certainly much quieter than it is during the tourist season, but it is still a wonderful place to visit — especially if you like seafood.
