A ticket south .....

Post by B.M. Barrelcooker » Mon Jun 27, 2016 8:44 pm

[report]


I got the chance to take my boy to football camp and spend a few days in a paradise of sorts. ......... I found company with two gentlemen that I know I could trust my life with . Drakians through and through. What an awesome time unfolded . It was hot......unbelievably hot and humid but everything was perfect. The marsh is a magical place ...despite the black flies and despite the voodoo.

We started with sushi:

Then oysters: raw then broiled

Then up in the morning and out to the bayou:

Attitudes got adjusted:

If my tombstone reads, "He never ate sushi." it won't be a lie, and I'll be OK with that.

Glad you didn't die eating raw oysters in June.
