I shouldn’t, but I do. Shouldn’t what you say? I shouldn’t feel guilty about taking a few days off from my blogging and social media, but I do. I did have a good time though and I’ll share with you some of the highlights!
Saturday we went to the 31st Annual Pensacola Crawfish Festival. Yes, most of you might wonder what’s so great about that. If you are from Louisiana you know what I am talking about. We wait for this every year because it’s the best Louisiana crawfish you can get while living in the state of Florida!
I read blogs from a couple of people in Louisiana. I’m pretty sure Beth over at Nutsrok knows what I’m talking about when I say good crawfish. 😉 Sadly, Chris McMullen which was one of the first blogs I followed, isn’t too fond of those mudbugs! He just doesn’t know what he’s missing. 😦
Besides having plenty of boiled crawfish – sixteen thousand pounds – there was plenty of other Louisiana delicacies to be had. Fried boudin balls, fried shrimp, fried crawfish tails, jambalaya – the list goes on and on.
No, I don’t suck the heads! H does and he’s not even from Louisiana, but went to school at LSU for many years so considers himself one of us.
Sunday we decided to drive to the pier on Okaloosa Island to do a little fishing. Didn’t catch a thing – just a little sun! It’s only a 10 minute drive from the house and afterwards there’s Anglers where you can stop in on your way out and have food and drink. 😉
The blue herons were everywhere and so un-afraid of people. There was one little boy with tousled blond hair running down the pier chasing one and yelling at the top of his lungs, “I’m gonna catch you!” In the nick of time that bird spread his wings and took off to land in a safer place atop one of the pilings. I wonder what that little boy would have done if he actually had caught one!
Julz, over at Julzcards will be glad to see how close I got to that blue heron. She knows my fear of birds. I had my running shoes on Julz! 😉
Now I’m back from a refreshing weekend and have lots to do and lots to write. How was your weekend? Hope you had some fun too!
Here’s to a great week ahead!
