PEACE LOVE AND CRABS--WHAT ELSE COULD YOU ASK FOR?


Our California family knew DH and I hadn’t traveled all this way just to see them.


In no time at all we were all sitting down at one of their favorite seafood eateries.


Our table had a view of the marina and plenty of sun and palm trees.


Menus were not long in coming.  
There was a great selection of shellfish entrées 
plus mac and cheese or pizza for those with different ideas of good food.


There was even a drink that included a shark on ice with a vial of “blood.”


DH and I ordered the steamed crab and shrimp.  We were outfitted with official bibs.


---Because this meal was hands on.  
It was yummy enough to make eyes roll to the ceiling 
when we pulled out the fresh crab and shrimp and dipped it in lemon and butter.


The servers turned up the music and did some energetic line dancing for our entertainment.


When we were through there was nothing left but sticky fingers, smiles and shells.

For some reason this member of the family didn't make it into my camera 
on this photo shoot, but she was right across the table sharing
plenty of the latest news.
