The Fruit of the Sea

Anyway, like I was sayin’, shrimp is the fruit of the sea. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. Dey’s uh, shrimp-kabobs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There’s pineapple shrimp, lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad, shrimp and potatoes, shrimp burger, shrimp sandwich. That- that’s about it. ~ Bubba (Forest Gump)

We’ve spent a good part of this past week talking with local fisherman. It’s been great fun! Shrimping isn’t particularly good right now. It’s the drought. Who knew the drought affects shrimping?

LJ, the captain of The Mr Marker patiently explained this while showing us his catch for the day – all of which was going to a bait store.

Tomorrow we pick up the RV and then it’s back to the holding tank while we wait for an assignment.
