[...] We then went to Merrick’s General Store for lunch and wine tasting - what a great little spot to discover! The flounder was the best I've ever had. Nikki shared interesting facts and stories along the drive that enriched our experience. She also went out of her way to meet a special request from another guest looking for a souvenir. I had a great day and highly recommend booking one of her tours - better than the excursion options offered by our cruise company. A+ all the way.
