What a treasure trove! Can't wait to hear the reports. Geoduck fascinates me, looks so disgusting (except to other geoducks I'm sure) but bet it's delicious.

See if you see any shrimp that isn't farm raised there. Besides gulf shrimp, I think most shrimp is farm raised now, salmon getting that way too. Salmon is getting to be expensive, is farmed more now and is also colored to look more appealingly pink. Humans are depleting/poisoning the sea of food that was until recently plentiful and inexpensive. Tiger shrimp from Indonesian waters is no longer fished because of all the technological manufacturing there and toxic waste that's made its way into the shrimp population. They're deemed too toxic to eat now.

Yup, WC Gulf shrimp. The delivery "tanker" was outside when we got there. I know the company is from the Port Charlotte/Punta Gorda area.

The ecological impact of human advancement is for another thread.

I am with you MC and Craig! I didn't understand one word that Chief wrote. Just the last sentence. Any thing to do with math is so way beyond my brain. I think he was talking about math.

I hear they're pretty good regardless of what they look like if you try them will you let us know what you think?
Will do. but it will be a few weeks. Sold our house and will be concentrating on finding a new place, packing and moving.

Not sure what you're asking, where we currently live or where we're going to live? If the latter, we don't know yet, but it will be in south Florida.
