My wife is the one that really enjoys the seafood. I would love to be able to take her to a seafood festival. Then she could sample all the goodies while I took lots of pictures.

I'll have a cuppa coffee please. MB

There must have been a bit of a nip in the air. I like that both hot coffee and iced tea were being offered. That concessionaire really knew the crowd.

@ Hi Brattcat - That concessionaire was the local Episcopal church...which we attended once - in the summer of 1988.

LOL sorry, I'm crazy, for the first gland I read "not coffee" LOL
And for sure I thought it was really rude! LOL
Then I read Brattcat comments and...friends...I need some glasses, for sure!
A beautiful day, great event and I'm glad that you have a nice time there!
Hugs

How nice to finally see folks in Florida with light jackets on. The breeze off the water and overall setting look perfect. The food must have been delicious and FRESH.

Lois said...

My kind of festival! I love the way that light looks in the first shot.

OK, if you didn't have seafood in your plate, maybe you could tell us what seafood there was to enjoy? Coffee is all very well but beans aren't fished, are they? ;-)

Jacob said...

@ Ciel - I think you'll see in future photos a couple of scenes that will hint at what food was served: certainly clams (Cedar Key is a major clam farming area; also shrimp; oysters; crab; and varieties of fish, including smoked mullet.

The seafood festival looks like it was a big event.

I don't know if the squirrels would die from drinking salty water but I would guess it would make their day a bit on the sick side.

Jacob said...

@ Abe - It's really not salty. It's a salt system rather than a chlorine operation. You add a special pool salt to the pool in recommended amounts; then a hydroelectric cell converts that to chloride (or something like that)...the pool water is much softer and does not discolor your hair and you can certainly drink it in small amounts. I know one kid in Ft. Lauderdale who threw fish in and they did fine. The squirrels are so funny...they bend over and lap it up. So far so good.

Looks like a mercantile UFO, that first big tent!

I've just finished a pizza (rare Friday treat!) and I'm hungry all over again. Sorry I'm so impatient!
