Today was one of those brilliant winter mornings along the Florida Gulf Coast. It blasted me out of the woods for a drive downtown, to take some pictures at the Palafox Pier and “go fishing” at Joe Patti’s Seafood.
Photos from the excursion will be posted tomorrow. Right now, I’m full of fresh crabmeat-stuffed red snapper and Italian spinach with pine nuts and am very sleepy.
I plan to grab a pocket-sized book to take to the bedroom so when I fall asleep there won’t be a heavy book to smash my nose and wake me up.
p.s. That one fish served Buck, Maggie and me with enough leftover for a snapper bisque and miniature crabcakes tomorrow.
