Double Post: Outdoor Wednesday and Foodie Friday


This is a double post for Outdoor Wednesday, hosted by Susan at A Southern Daydreamer and Foodie Friday, hosted by Michael at Designs By Gollum. Please visit their blogs for other participants.


~~~


One of our favorite things to do in the summer is to go boating and pull up to a waterside restaurant to eat -- usually Maryland blue crabs. Yummers!



This guy is waving to all of you in blogland!


Here's a picture of our little 18 1/2 footer that I affectionately call "The Canoe." I call it that because you should see some of the boats that are stored at our marina. Yowsa! You could definitely live on a lot of them.


Me and Mr. Maison...


Our good friends, Debbie and Sid...

  23. Oh, that sounds like so much fun. I've seen some of those "boats" you're talking about, even on the Tennessee River. Wow! I'd have to pass on the waterside restauant, especially if it is floating. I did just what you're talking about once with a group from Honey Bear's office. I was too sick to eat. I have a big problem with motion sickness because of my Minere's Syndrome.

  24. Crab! I would so love some, NOW! LOL! I love dining next to the water and eating the seafood recently caught there. I have never been to the Eastern Seaboard, only the Western side. I love the coastal areas there. Thanks for the wonderful pics. hugs ~cindy s~

  32. I have a friend who swears I would like crab if I had Maryland blue crab. I love lobster and shrimp so maybe she's right!

    Happy Outdoor Wednesday!

  33. I have never had Maryland blue crab. My ex husband was from Maryland & he loved it, but I never tried it. But I do love crab legs, shrimp & lobster. So I'm sure I would love it! Love your canoe. Too funny!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Agreed Maryland Blue crabs are yummy! I think I will go munch on a banana and have a glass of ice tea. Getting hungry looking at your blog.

  37. Tammy...you are in trouble (kidding)... I told my husband Wednesday after reading your post that I HAD to have crab this weekend... and when he asked "why?" I answered "Tammy said so".... instead of arguing (he knows how I feel about my blogging friends)...he said "ok"...Happy Foodie Friday! Have a great weekend ~ Susan

  38. Tammy, I love crabs, well all seafood for that matter. But fresh crabs are the best. Looks like you had a perfect day!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Oh, this was wonderful, Tammy! I wish I'd been there with yall! I went back to BL and bought yet another $2 tablecloth--pale turquoise with white butterflies. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
