I took my daughter to A.W. Shucks before she went off to school the other day. We had their oyster hoagies, plus a half dozen oysters on the half shell from the Cape Charles area on the Eastern Shore. Nice and salty.
Saturday evening we met friends at O'Sullivan's Wharf in Norfolk. They promptly ordered a couple of dozen oysters for appetizers, these from the Kinsale area on the western shore of Chesapeake Bay. Less salty, more sweet.
And then Sunday, I had a lunch of Lynnhaven oysters at the Dockside Restaurant overlooking the Lynnhaven River in Virginia Beach. Very salty and sweet.
I might turn into an oyster.
