Where are we today ?A great nights sleep and an early morning as usual. After a few coffees, check emails and blogs then a walkabout the resort. Just enjoying the peace a quiet down by the bayou. Love this area and the weather is awesome!
Our plan for today was to check out the Pass Christian Oyster Festival not far from here about a 10 minute drive. So off we go about 10:30 am and look for a parking spot. Just love to check out these local festivities. Found a spot to park not too far away and headed down to the waterfront and check out whats going on.

I took lotsa pictures, and only posted a few. Just so much to see and do taking in the local flair.

|good deal for beer|

Everything is set up here right on the waterfront and weather today was perfect. Sunshine, no wind and about 78 f (25c). Now neither one of us are oyster fans in any form. But we had an early lunch before we headed out. There was lotsa vendors there and we enjoyed the music and ambiance of the day. This one couple from Wisconsin were eating some fried oysters and french fries. I asked where she got them and offered a sample. Glad I tried them not for us. She did not like them either. tried a sample of boiled peanuts, but again too spicy for Suzie. But gotta do it.

|Tye died clothes anyone|
|shucking oysters here|
|fried green tomato burger?|
|beautifully made doll beds|
|by the waterfront|

On our way back to the car checked out a few of the rides set up mostly for children. Still pretty quiet. Love these small town fairs, not too crowded and fun to wander about.
Then back home mid afternoon,and guess what? Got our chairs and books out to enjoy this awesome day that we are having.
|its the weekend lotsa kids having fun|
Added some steamed cabbage, and homemade applesauce that we had and a great supper again.
Thanks for stopping by for a visit.
