Cheap Seafood Anyone!

It's interesting what goes on in towns across our country. I have often thought it would be fun to hang out in different places and just observe different things that go on there. Things you don't see at home, but is common place where you are visiting.

There is a little makeship strip mall of flea market type booths in very close proximity of the entrance to the park we are staying at here in Westwego, LA. We had been by it many times, and I hardly noticed. Yesterday, Al said lets go see what that is about. So we stopped and there were 15 to 20 different vendors selling shrimp, oysters, crawfish and rattlesnake meat and other types of seafood. They call out to you with their sales pitches as you walk by. We had just bought a bag of frozen shrimp at Sam's Club, so we weren't in the market for any. It appears to be very fresh, right off the boat. $2.50 to $3.50 pr. lb depending on size.

We didn't have our camera, so we stopped by this morning and took a few pictures. Not great pics, but you can get an idea.
