When In Rome

The port of Brookings is the busiest recreational port on the Oregon Coast, generating more than 31,000 boat trips for more than 95,000 people, and is one of the most active harbors for Chinook salmon on the coast.

Oh, and just in case the picture above does not speak to the obvious … there is no shortage of delicious, fresh Dungeness Crab to be had.  Even those who demand ultimate freshness will have no problems buying straight from the boat.

As for yours truly, I’ve been busy sampling all sorts of fresh seafood lately – a treat for me as Kelly routinely curls her nose at any creature who is principally domiciled in the sea.

My advice … if you find yourself around these parts, take break from the routine land-based fare, and treat yourself to some of the best seafood meals you will find.

    I’d love to try all the seafood, too. I would especially love lobster. I would like to have crab and eat until I am full, not just until the legs run out.Made roast,mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans fresh yeast buns and fresh fruit salad. Had my sister-in-law and neighbor for supper.It was fun to cook a big meal and eat it —-beats the jello of the past week!!!
