Half Shell with Stripes

I took this picture at the Marina Oyster Barn in Pensacola on December 23, 2003, and am sticking it in here out of chronological order to break up all that dead wood, and to remind myself how much I have missed eating raw oysters. "Pristine" is necessary when it comes to on-the-half-shell oysters; hard to be sure of their provenance these days.

  1. Oh. They look yummy. Probably against good judgement, I bought a pint of freshly shucked from my friends at Reids on Sat and ate a few for lunch for the next three days. So far, nothing bad has happened. And they were just as delicious as I had hoped. Sometimes you just have to trust the source and trust that the Good Lord ain’t finished with you yet.
    Best, Betty


    1. Hi Betty! If I had a great resource like Reids here, I would slurp those babies right down. It’s crisp and cold here today — a dozen on the half shell sure would be great. You’re my first commenter on my new photoblog, which is always special (to me!). I appreciate you. If you decide to try one for your photos, this WordPress theme (called AutoFocus) is really fun. You can click on a category (i.e. food, or Longleaf Preserve) and it gives you a nifty looking gallery. I plan to go back and add in some archives. You can make it private, too. It’s a nice way to get photos into the cloud and categorized.


Thanks for stopping by. What are you writing about today?
