Nothing is as soothing and replenishing after a hard day clamming at the beach than devouring the cobbler of the day at the Halfway House Restaurant in Brinnon.

A shellfish harvesting pilgrimage to Dosewallips State Park is not complete without a huge homemade cobbler a la mode. My choice was the strawberry rhubarb cobbler and it did not disappoint. Fresh out of the oven, the buttery and flaky crust reminded me that some desserts are not meant to be shared. The filling had just the right amount of sweetness and tartness. Fresh clams and cobbler, all is right in the world!

Stopping for a slice of homemade pie at the Halfway House Restaurant in Brinnon is always a great way to cap off a great day after digging for clams and slurping oysters on the beach. As the norm, the selection of pies made  it difficult to choose which treat to have. But, after the waitress announced that a fresh batch of marionberry cobblers just came out of the oven, we were instantly sold!

Topped by a large scoop of vanilla ice cream, the flaky “melted-in-your-mouth” crust and the sweet tartness of fresh berries made a strong case for the best dessert of the year!
