Happy National Oyster Day!

Oyster on Ice | Oysters & Pearls

As a blog named after my favorite mollusk (and its side gig as pearl producer), you know I had to commemorate an important holiday such as this!  Thus, I present to you a National Oyster Day round-up in honor of the briny bivalve we all know and love.

    Where is the parade and why don’t we get today off?!?! Oh, well. Here’s to one of my two favorite bivalves! (Scallops get a day too, right?) They’ve never looked better than on your blog and through your lens.

      I agree that this day is cause for a grand celebration! And scallops get a festival in Port St. Joe in September! I heartily participate in celebrating them as well. Thanks!
