Fort Morgan Oyster Fest

Grilled oysters, fried oysters, raw oysters, oyster stew; I sound like Bubba Gump and his shrimp choices, yet this is what we tasted at the Annual Fort Morgan Oyster Festival, held the weekend of February 24- 25 at the Beach Club.

My friend, David Pierce, just bought a classic MGB which I first saw last week with him smiling behind the wheel.
