Big J and I went to the Cardinal Point Oyster Festival this afternoon. What a treat! Cardinal Point is one of our favorite wineries in the area and when you match that with oysters from Rappahannock River Oyster Co. you can't go wrong.
little j spent the afternoon with a friend, so it was just Big J and I with a couple bottles of wine and steamed and raw oysters -- we didn't get our order in for fried early enough, so we missed out there. Oh, we also had oyster stew. Yum! We met Deborah Pratt, four-time World Shucking Champion. She told us she could shuck two dozen oysters in 2 minutes!
All in all, a perfect late fall afternoon.
