From Eastpoint

Every oyster boat in Eastpoint was out in the bay today.  I'm guessing it's because oysters are a New Year's staple and they are stocking the restaurants for the big night.

Here is their starting point.  Apalachicola is the tourist destination, with its romantic shrimp boats, old Victorian homes, and broad street commercial district.  Eastpoint is the real world of hard working fishermen, with its own pick-up truck culture.  The warehouses and launchpoints on this side of the Apalachicola River are much more to my artist's liking.

Happy New Year!
