no- not another post about our wildlife. last night we decided at the last minute to go out for dinner. my mother was a big fan of the Anna Maria Oyster Bar and especially of their lobster bisque. so we decided to go there and surprise! it was lobster night!
the lobsters were five bucks off and they had two specials - lobster stuffed with crab meat and lobstercargot (like escargot but with lobster chunks instead.) Phil ordered the stuffed and we shared a "cargot" and each got a lobster bisque (we still think it is the best in the country.) I had the sauteed shrimp and scallops and we were happy campers.
this is a wall painting in the ladies room. it is of the home of the original Anna Maria Oyster Bar - it has been around a long time. the current one has a couple of locations but we have always gone to the one on Cortez just off the island's south bridge.
and here is my own photo of the pier from my photo book of Anna Maria which I have posted in the above post:
