The Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum should be very happy with the turnout for the First Annual Edible Mullosk Festival at Timbers Restaurant & Fish Market . It was so much fun! There was an oyster eating contest, mullet tossing contest, dunk tank, face painting and shell crafting for the kids, shell displays and lots of oysters to eat and drink. Yep- I had one of those oyster shooters too and it really was mmmm good!

Ps- Didn’t find many shells on Captiva or off  West Gulf Drive today. The best were off Middle Gulf around Fulgur Street access….nothing fantastic but still fun shelling. We didn’t make it to the lighthouse.
