October 19th-October 21st
We started out at Murphy's Pub in Oldtowne Alexandria on Friday night and went down to good 'ole southern Maryland for the Oyster Festival on Saturday afternoon.
|You can see the crowded bar beyond the reaches of our table...which was right in front of the band!
|Chuck and Alicia were a little surprised to see me when they got there as I took an earlier flight.
|Where is Johnny's hand? And why do I look so happy?
|The bar is getting more crowded as the night wears on.
|The band (Double Down) started playing and everybody began singing and clapping along to the music.
|Scott looking happy and evil.
|It's impossible not to have a great time at Murphy's Pub.
|Damn Johnny and his hands!! He's got me and Chuck all excited now.
|I don't think anybody wants to know what Scott is doing and why Alicia is so frightened.
|Everybody got in the spirit that night.
|This was about the cutest sight of the entire evening.
|And here we all are having a giant group hug.
|Showing off the lovely shape of my head.
|Yes, I made fun of everybody standing in line to get in at 1:00 AM.
|This was a constant site in front of the fried oyster tent.
|I shelled out plenty of hard earned cash for my share of oysters...which was actually two or three peoples' shares.
|The spoils of war!
|Chuck and Jennafer couldn't be bothered with waiting for the rest of us.
|Maybe southern Maryland turns you into a glutton, but we stopped later for sandwiches after eating oysters.
