Valentines Day at Perdido Key

Yesterday was a great day at the beach - a little overcast after having rained at least 5 inches overnight...we spent a quiet day starting with an attempt at breakfast at the Hangout but a run for something had the access points blocked off so we went up the street to the Pancake House in the Best Western. Both restaurants overlook the Gulf so it was nice either way... After that we drove ten minutes north to Foley Alabama and I checked out the COACH outlet store and treated myself to a new purse...found a couple of gifts and we returned to the Park with my treasures.

There were two events at the clubhouse to mark the holiday - a visit from the cooking ladies from two Canadian women who travel in a motorhome and promote their cookbooks. We enjoyed hearing about their travels and learned that they had been sponsored by Home Hardware in the past. They write a column for the RV Lifestyle Magazine and asked for our details as fellow travelling Canadians...

The second event was an oyster feast: shucking is evidently a spectator sport since we all enjoyed watching Carl and Scott dig away at the elusive prey! The oysters were prepared raw or grilled on the half shell. A pot luck supper rounded out the festivities and since Richard (my valentine) and I were fighting this cold we had to retreat to the Airstream at about 6 30 pm for an early night.
