"Nothing in life prepares you for your first raw oyster."

On the last night of Mamaw and Papaw's vist, we were looking for a good seafood place to eat.   So we went to the Port of Garibaldi in Bay City.
We ate at the Fish Peddler.  Their cuisine came highly recommended by the locals.  We enjoyed their food very much.  

While we were there, we noticed that raw oysters were on the menu.  Trying new things is a good thing, right?  And taking a dare is ok too once in a while, right?  And that positive peer pressure "I'll do it if you do it" is good, right?   We are talking a raw, slimy, gritty oyster, smothered in cocktail sauce.

First up:  Andy
 Head back, tilt the glass......
 Oyster is stuck.... use a fork

Second up:  Dixie

Ready. Set. Go...
 Slurp. Chew. Swallow
 There, I've done it~ just because I never thought I could. 

 Third up:  Papaw

 Gulp. Chew. Chew. Grimace. Swallow

Like the glass says:  "  Nothing in life prepares you for your first raw oyster."

Overall this was not a bad experience.  The cocktail sauce was yummy and it was all over very quickly.  Would I eat one again?  Sure.
