Festival Time–Helen 10/02/11

Fall is festival time in the south.  This weekend we attended the NC Seafood Festival in Morehead City.  This is like a mini version of the state fair.  There is a midway with a variety of rides and games of chance; lots of food booths with the seafood being king here; crafts for sale, especially things with coastal themes; three stages with any number of music genres; and tents featuring local chefs giving demonstrations about how to cook seafood.

Bryce and I went yesterday; we took Suzy in her stroller.  I don’t exaggerate when I say that we could not walk more than twenty feet without someone coming up and asking:  “How old is she”‘;”Is she a girl or boy” (duh!  Suzy was wearing a pink sweatshirt with “Sweetheart”); “Can I pet her”; “How old is she?”

The food was pretty good.  We had a so-so crab cake sandwich; a cajun shrimp in pita bread which was not spicy enough; and frozen cheesecake covered in chocolate on a stick that was awesome.  So I guess you could say we ate our way through the festival.

To be continued next week when we go to the Todd Festival up in the moutains….
