Watery Wednesday # 35

Shrimp boat off the coast of North Carolina. May 6, 2009.

This is my post for Watery Wednesday, a weekly meme created and hosted by 2sweeetnsaxy of Eyes, Mind, Heart.  To see more of our beautiful watery world, or to join and post your own pictures to share, click HERE.

The picture above was taken from the balcony of our room at Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina.  We could see at least one shrimp boat off the coast just about every day.  We liked to think that the boat was busy catching our dinner for that evening.

We thoroughly enjoyed the beach and we enjoyed the seafood even more, if that is possible.  Ocean Isle is just north of Calabash, North Carolina, and  Little River, South Carolina.  Both of those towns are fishing ports and it’s possible to buy seafood fresh seafood right off the boats.  Betsy and I prefer to let someone else buy and prepare the seafood.  Both towns have excellent seafood restaurants and we have favorites in both towns and visit them each year.

An ocean view and fresh seafood — two wonderful things about our watery world.
