An Update and a Dive!

Hi Guys! It looks like it’s about time for an update….

The Biologist and our neighbors have recently been diving for abalone, scallops and sea cucumbers. I know absolutely nothing about diving but it looks like a good, cold time.DCIM100GOPROGOPR0246.

This was the first time I had ever eaten abalone and it was tasty! They were deep fried and we ate them with a squeeze of lemon juice. I am not generally a fan of scallops but everyone who tried them said they were delicious. Now deciding what to do with the lovely leftover abalone shells…

In other news-

Last week we both caught a wicked head cold. Fought it off with some antibiotics, rest and a hot toddy.IMG_7640

We added some air plant hanging terrariums to our inventory of beach shack decor. They are floating in the living room and I absolutely LOVE them!

Spring is definitely here! I am excited for some non-liquid sunshine, boat trips and bonfires!IMG_7576

Hope all is well! Cheers! 🙂

One thought on “An Update and a Dive!

  1. It has been over 30 years since I have had abalone. Restaurants in the Bay Area used to have it on their menu and you didn’t have to be rich and famous! I absolutely loved it! I think they pounded it flat with a meat mallet and fried it. I have fond memories! It is early spring here and mostly rainy and cold. Sitka must be the “banana belt” if you are swimming and hiking.
