Shrimp Festival

I spent this morning at the Shrimp Festival at Gulf Shores.  The weather was awesome.  Not a cloud in the sky.  No shade to be was Hot, I'm not sure what happened to Fall!  The vendors were great.  My mom bought me a Mermaid painting for Christmas.  I love mermaids.  There was a lot of jewelry and woodworking.  Not much fiber art this year.  But then, I didn't go for the vendors.  I went for the food!  I indulged my love of crab claws (even though I'm allergic!)  and of course who can not try the alligator on a stick!  For those of you who have never had fried gator- it tastes like chicken with the texture of chewy pork chops.  This year I  saw you could actually have a shark bob!?  I didn't even know you could sell shark!  I didn't try that.  I'll leave you with a few pictures.
Gulf Shores...chilly water today!

Dad with what's left of his Gator!

I'm all ready for the Quilt along tomorrow.  How about you?
Happy Quilting
