Many of us dread the colder months at the beach, and even though we’ve had very little cold weather this year, it does get dark early and stays dark until well past my alarm clock’s morning salute. March’s arrival is always welcome – spring is in sight, and the days are beginning to lengthen. My only regret about the end of winter is no more oysters! I attended two oyster roasts in February, and these parties are the stars of the season. Traditionally held outside, there is always a roaring fire to help everyone warm up between steaming pots of oysters shucked on a communal table. Laughter, the warmth of friendship and a shared love of our delicious local bivalves help us remember to celebrate the joy in every season.
Our writers did a wonderful job this month bringing us their favorite memories of food and fellowship. I know you’ll enjoy reading about everything from the love of peanut butter and jelly to the perfect surprise party. I was able to interview a couple of really interesting people as well. And, as always, please let us know what you think!
