It's vacation time this week. We always take off the week of our anniversary. I want to share some of the places we have visited while riding and what has been going on.
Ouzts Too. We have been meaning to try this place for quite a while. It's off the St Mark's River; a local place with colorful characters.
The prices are good and the food is excellent. It's very local......complete with a friendly and chatty oyster shucker and lots of southern decor, redneck style that is :-)
Notice all the dollar bills stapled to the wall, bar, tables and elsewhere in the photo above and this one here? If you have a dollar and want to write a message or just sign your name, the waitress will bring over a cup of colored markers and you can have at it.
Here is a little history about the place. Very interesting to read. It's a forgotten part of Florida.
I had a shrimp Po Boy and Doug had the oyster Po Boy sandwich. Both of which I neglected to photograph so I could link up with Deb at Kahakai Kitchen. Next time....
I passed this giant wooden cowboy on the way to the restroom. He had a dollar stapled to him too. Some places along the coast have giant pirates, it was nice to see a cowboy.
Here's our dollar. We stapled it to the bar and will look for it next time we ride there for oysters and beer. I saw one dollar with "Off to Coast Guard Boot Camp!!" and the date some 3 years back. I wonder if the woman is still in the Coast Guard.
Can't wait to come back here and eat oysters, mullet dip and more!
Time to gear up and head home.
The ride back home was almost punishingly hot. Hot doesn't cover it, especially when you have to sit at a traffic light on that steamy asphalt. The temperature was 100 F but I couldn't get a clear photo.
By the time we got home we were ready to jump in a cold shower and let me say, that was very welcome. Our rides will mostly be in the early morning while the heat is this excessive. It's still a blast to go riding on vacation though and I look forward to many more trips.
Interesting week, weather-wise. On Tuesday evening we were able to sit outside enjoying a good dinner as the temperatures were Springlike. ...
There are days I just want to be at home. Sit in the den and read while Aja stares and casts judgement. I'm so ready to retire and I kn...
Guess what I made recently? Brown Soda Bread from a recipe in the book Stir by Jessica Fechtor . It was a hit. Moist and flavorful. Per...
