This is where it all comes together, oyster, clams, palm trees, gasoline, pickup-trucks, a convenience store, the fruit stand. If you want to get the pulse of the place, hang out here. The center of it all is the convenience store which is locally referred to as The New Jiffy, although it was here when I came to town for the first time about 35 years ago. The Old Jiffy is a little further into town, next to the Post Office. That used to be The Hub, but with home mail delivery, email, smart phones, and computers, the prominence of the Post Office has greatly diminished. It’s here, at the only gas station in town, where the fishermen fuel their boats, homeowners get gas for their lawnmowers, tourist get their gas and beer, and cooks get their veggies. The fruit stand and the convenience store are hidden around the bushes on the left. Rains Restaurant, which was inside the double doors of the small building on the right, was where I had my first breakfast in town, and it was a good one! It was one of those places where the seats in the booths seemed to be old car seats and everything was a little rickety, but the food was local, different and super!
