Rodney's Oyster Fest

This A.M. in Toronto is finally drying up from last nights' thunderstorm.  We have had some petty intense downpours amongst this summer heat.  One of the most incredible storms happened a couple of weeks ago at Rodney's Oyster Fest.  I have never been so drenched in my life.  I was wearing a full maxi dress and not an inch of me was dry.  I felt mermaid-esque as I arrived, as though I just washed up on shore  from the ocean.  

This annual Ontario oyster shucking competition, was rumoured to be their last.  Rodney Clark the owner of Rodney's Oyster House~ could be a relative of yours Mackers!?! 
Rodney is infamous in Toronto, his restaurants have the best oysters, brought in fresh every day.

My apologies my friends and I devoured the oysters before we even had a chance to take a picture of them!

"Rodney Clark, “The Oysterman”, has presented and celebrated oysters in downtown Toronto for over twenty years. He started his adventures in “the big smoke” working as a graphic artist.  When the oyster parties became too much for him with to keep up with the two jobs, he dropped the graphics and went straight into people’s homes and restaurants, shucking furiously for the bivalve virgins of land locked Toronto".

Lost Sole  
With great live entertainment, oyster shuckers, seafood lovers and dancers, we were still soaking wet under the tent.  After standing in puddles, hours later, I saw this lost sole.  I guess the waterlogged shoe just gave up on keeping it together. LOL
