Another oyster roast


It's finally Saturday. Thankfully. After a long week that had its ups and downs, and cold weather for these parts, today is supposed to be warm with temps in the 60's. It's going to be good weather to go on the boat.

There's a group of people coming to the anchorage and island to have an oyster roast. It's the same group that did the oyster roast for my birthday. They have a pontoon boat that can get up really close to the beach, close enough to put a gangway down. It's a family owned business that does eco-tours of the area and the boat has the capacity to carry around 40 people. So it will be fun to eat some oysters with them and their customers this afternoon.

After the oyster roast, I'm going to meet up with my sponsor and a friend to go to an open AA meeting. After that I'll probably spend the night on the boat.

I like having some activity on a warm Saturday. There's nothing better than getting with friends, eating steamed oysters, being on the water, and then ending the day with a meeting.

Happy Saturday to everyone.

  2. Sounds like a great time. It's warming up here as well this weekend. Time to get outside a bit after the 30 degree highs earlier in the week.

  4. We are in a drought with temps today expected to be 74º. All these up and down temps have made lots of people sick. Hope your Saturday is a nice one.

  10. Where in the hell did a name like oyster come from. I used to love em raw with a tomato and horseradish sauce. Always followed or in between a 12 or 24 pack of beer. HIC.
    Been a lot of changes.

  13. With Zane (is this getting to be a habit?), I loved oysters with that hot sauce--whatever. Also either before, or after, drinking. Also, never cared for them much the past 34 sober years.

    But they had to be raw..not cooked, or roasted. If Syd says they're good, it is probably true.
