Below is the final product, grilled shrimp and grouper cheeks with a fresh salad.
Four days after moving on board we had our 1st guest for the 4th of July weekend. What a nightmare trying to find homes for things plus tidy up for guest. We needed about another 2 just to stow stuff and so many items never left the back of the truck and actually at the time of writing this several items are still there. The 4th however was a great weekend. No rain except for a shower here and there which did its best to cool things off. Below are our guest Keith & Linda Jo with the sun setting over Shell Island.
Doesn't get any better......
The moon rising over the bay
we had terrific seats for all the firework displays going on all along the bay, Panama City beach and some by the City Marina.
I had never scalloped before so it was a new experience for both of us. We almost caught our limit of 2 gallons apiece. We ended up with 7 gallons
and below is Dan & Dirk doing the 3 hour chore of cleaning them.
The final product was cooked up by Dan on the dock. Fresh bay scallops sauteed in garlic, butter, and white wine served along side of pasta. I had never eaten a scallop before and I have to admit the texture will take some time to get use to but the meat had a very good flavor. It was a very long day and we didn't actually eat till about 10:30 that evening. By 11 Dan & Roxanna had taken off and headed back to the RV. What a great fun, tiring day.
We were suppose to go back the next day but all of us were too wiped out to think about it. Dirk did however go back today and I hear there will be more to clean this evening. Till next time.....and I'm hoping it wont be too long in between post. I need to adopt some sort of schedule....., wait, were retired now....we don't need no stinking schedule.....
