Seduced to go Shrimping

Dock friend, Dave, enticed me to go shrimping by noting it was definitely a bloggable event...and as you can see, it was. Alan and I joined the family, Dave and Jess and Sugar and Bob, and the volunteer group from the Univ of Toledo on Alternative Spring Break.

Humans armed with nets and flashlights pointed into the water, those poor little critters never had a chance.

And then I missed the last part so no photos of...pinching off their heads and cooking the headless bodies for three minutes in boiling water.

I admit, I really do like shrimp cocktail!

Ooh, I'm jealous! (Both of the eating and the catching.)

We didn't get to it any...they say a catch of about 15 or so is really shrimpy...maybe two shrimps worth. But fun and silly.
And other things to eat here...good seaood place to take you to and do you like Key Lime Pie?

"eat" any, not "it" any

and seafood

but you get the drift

Great blog! And it was great meeting you down in Key Largo.
Jess and I are back in Framingham, MA, enjoying the balmy 57 degree day...
Thanks again, Alan, for the intro to sailing!
Have a great rest of your trip,
Dave and Jess
