  10. I wonder if part of that load will be off to France Bill? As much as I love most things French, oysters are not included ☺

  11. Somehow, seeing them all packaged up for shipping like this makes them just a bit less appealing and I love oysters.

  13. They harvest clams in Cedar Key, but this is a different way of sorting for sure. Not a bad idea to keep track of large and small.

  19. That is a lot of oysters! I wouldn't have imagined them packed up like that. (BTW: I love the idea of sending cards with bits of knitting - and, of course, ones own photography. Kindred spirits!)

  20. Love this -- so much fun to watch other people work. Also brought back memories of when we would watch similar activities in Texas when we stayed there a couple of winters.
