Mullet Festival
We had the most beautiful day yesterday! The sun was shining, a soft breeze was blowing and there was music in the air. What more could you ask for? The Mullet Festival 2010. I have been there before so I have to say the Mullet was not what I came for. But it is a great time to get out and enjoy the sights.
It started out as neighborhood fish fry many years ago and they had so much fun that the town decided to have an annual event.
This is a really old town. It was incorporated in 1783. The town was mostly a sea port and a ship building community. I enjoy the small town feel and the slow pace. The town sits on a river that opens into the intercoastal waterway.

You can see the inlet at the end of the street. Shrimp boats sit on the left of where this boat is. The water was so pretty.

My daughter is showing off some of the great buys the vendors have to offer.

Check out this couple shagging on the grass. (It's a Carolina thing) Ha ha! What a great day. I hope you all had as much fun as I did! I have more to post later. Thanks for stopping by. Have a supper Sunday!

Ha! When I first pulled this post up, I though it was about the hairdo, not the fish. Kansas flatlander that I am, I don't think much about fish, but I do love to eat seafood. :)

I have to say that I thought it was about the hairdo too, but then when I realized it was about the fish, I understood...I live in Florida for 5 years and there were plenty of mullet in the canals! Looks like such a great festival in a cute little town! Forgive me, but when you said a couple was "shagging" on the grass, I wasn't looking for a couple that was dancing! Shagging makes me think of Austin Powers and you know what shagging means to him! LOL!!
P.S. I want to compliment you on your new blog header! It is absolutely beautiful! I love the photos you chose! And...great job on this post, I loved all the photos! Makes me want to visit the shore!
