Historic Poulsbo and oystering

Yesterday Ed and I took a drive down to historic Poulsbo WA. I had been there many years ago when I came to Bremerton for work and fell in love with it. It's a charming little Norwegian town that consists of one main road with quaint little shops on both sides. It didn't take long to stroll through, so when we were finished, we had lunch at a local restaurant and then stopped at the bakery next door that had delicious looking pastries in the window and bought 2 treats for breakfast this morning!

When Ed's son got off of work, we headed to his house, and from there we drove to a private beach about 1/2 hour down the road to go oystering. A friend of his rents a house that has access to this private beach that has tons of oysters when the tide goes wasn't quite out when we got there so we enjoyed watching the water for about an hour before it was low enough to start collecting the oysters.
It didn't take long to fill up two buckets and we brought them back to Eddie's condo where he cleaned them and we cooked them on the grill. Yumm!! Poor Eddie...Ed was eating them faster than Eddie could clean them! His poor hands were freezing and raw...oh, well! They certainly were delicious!
