Sunset Over Whiskey River-Port Richey

Sunset Over Whiskey River-Port Richey

Port Richey, Florida in Pasco County is a west coast town sitting on the Gulf of Mexico. In 1883, Aaron Richey from Missouri, established Port Richey at the mouth of the Pithlachascotee River; and opened a post office in 1884.

Further back in 1863, Capt. Leroy Leslie and Mr. David Hope sold salt from the salt springs just northwest of  Port Richey. Salt was $10/bushel. Salt Springs is now a park for all of us to enjoy.

I took this Sunset Over Whiskey River-Port Richey photo from the deck of Catches Restaurant, looking west to capture the sunset. You can see the restaurant Whiskey River across the water. Whiskey River Sports Bar and Grill is a great place to eat; Catches Waterfront Grille too. Don’t miss them if you’re here visiting.

Catches is directly off US 19; and Whiskey River is on Limestone Road which runs off US 19. In Port Richey, FL, of course.

We enjoy our days that end with the most wonderful sunsets and I’m sure Mr. Richey, Mr. Leslie and Mr. Hope enjoyed many beautiful sunsets in their days in Port Richey, FL.
