Seafood Festival {Part 1 of 2}

The Pensacola Seafood Festival.

The 32nd annual Pensacola Seafood Festival, presented by the Fiesta of Five Flags, was held in historic Seville Square area in downtown Pensacola. This event has been consistently recognized as one of the Top 20 Event in the Southeast by the Southeast Tourism Society.
Yes. We went. Right after work. In the HEAT of the day. And it was sweltering. We walked. We sweated. We looked at piles of fried seafood under heat lamps, and somehow, that sight didn't make us want to eat seafood. So we walked on and looked at all the artsy stands. If it hadn't been so dang hot, and I hadn't been so dang tired, it would of been different. And we wouldn't of found ourselves within the hour sitting in the sweet sweet air conditioning of Cactus Flower drinking sweet sweet iced tea, munching on chips and salsa waiting for our burrito. Not just any burrito.
Burrito - This burrito is called "el Jefe" (the boss) filled with your choice of meat, rice, beans, three cheeses, Santa Fe sauce, pico de gallo and crispy greens! Beef Pork Chicken or Vegetarian.
But I digress. Back to the Seafood Festival...

Fried Shrimp
and all other forms of seafood

"Do not overcook this dish. Most seafoods...should be simply threatened with heat and then celebrated with joy."

"Watercolor, with all its subtle color and value gradations and its many welcome surprises, is the perfect medium for capturing mood."

"Someday perhaps the inner light will shine forth from us, and then we'll need no other light."

Great photos. I felt your pain. We also were dripping by the time we left the festival and we couldn't bear the thought of eating hot food. Another food festival where we didn't eat!
