Omg....now I really feel like I'm on vacation!
As we were putting our kayaks in the water, there were dolphins swimming within 50 yds. of us. So beautiful!!!
We stopped at an oyster reef, and gathered tons of oysters.....again,so much fun!!! Julie cracked some open & we ate them raw, right there as we were gathering them.
We gathered oysters for quite a while and then headed on out and found another area where we found lots of conch shells with the conch still living in them. This one was about 8 pounds & over a foot long! After we studied him for a while we put him back....conch are endangered in FL
When we got back this evening, Neil and Wayne shucked oysters... Lots of them...we had oyster and clam (we found a few of those too) chowder, oysters on the half shell, and oysters baked with butter, garlic, Parmesan and bread crumbs....it was like "Oyster Festival"!!!!
I had never been kayaking before.....so peaceful and beautiful, really makes you feel closer to nature.
I think we are going out again on Friday, but this time in the mangroves.
