Coastal Living

Sally and I spent the weekend with my parental units. A grand time was had by all, especially our two kittens. We left the three older cats home, so Noodle and Pye were able to enjoy the full attention of each other and four humans. They also developed a liking for camellia water!

We took my parent's to Nance's for seafood last night. My mother indulged herself in one of her favourite treats, steamed oysters. The local oysters at Nance's are too-die-for-good. Sally had her fave coastal fish, grouper, my Dad had fried oysters and I had sauteed shrimp. We all swapped tidbits and ate way too many hush puppies.

High cuisine is all very well and I do enjoy a gourmet meal, but fresh seafood all by itself is darn hard to beat for plain good eats.

If we lived in the low country, I guarantee I'd be eating a lot more, but I'd probably weigh less. Our grill would be seeing a lot more use, you see...
