Ailsa’s Travel Photo Challenge: Merchandise

What comes to mind with Chesapeake Bay? For me it is seafood. Freshly caught.

I went to Virginia with the promise that I would be eating a lot of fresh blue crabs, oysters, fish and all that. And that’s exactly what happened. Instead of eating a lot from seafood buffets, we bought a crate of crabs, a box of Chesapeake oysters, a big box of spot fish and bags of other fishes. For once in my life, I cleaned 70 pounds of fish in one seating as I was just too embarassed to ask others to help me. The rest did the cooking though. But I didn’t mind, the fishes were so fresh that there was no fishy smell even while they were cooking them.

Until after we were done the next day, for days the aroma of fried food lingered in the garage. We sprayed, used candles, aerate it still it was there for a couple of days.

It was so much fun. And yes, we ate all we can in the garage!

    I don’t particularly like seafood but it thrills me to read that you are getting a very Virginia experience.

    Thanks Amy! Everything here in Chicago cost double so it was fun to know that they were so cheap there but the crabs still cost just as much here.
