The serene location is near the African Village at the San Diego Safari Park. It looks like it just may be the perfect spot for crawdad fishing. A crawdad looks like a small lobster (also called crayfish.) Have you ever been crawdad fishing? When I look at this peaceful scene, an American Folk Song, The Crawdad Song comes to my mind. You can hear the song and download the free sheet music Freebies Crawdad. I play this southern song in the Key of F, too.

Alongside the numerous nature trails inside the park, I noticed these pretty orange flowers growing everywhere. I'm not sure of the name but they have an appearance similar to a red trumpet wildflower.
Later on in the day we took a drive over to the harbor to see if anyone caught something for the day and we spotted the two fishermen with a sun perch on the line.
No worries here because this little fish quickly was scooped up and put right back in a bucket of water. Do you remember the funny part in Nemo where the pelicans say, "Mine."?!
I think you can see the puzzled look on my grandson's face since he was so excited to climb up the rails of the pier, but seems a bit perplexed and not so thrilled in finding his way down. He made a safe landing, so all is well!
|The Essential seafood Cookbook|
From crab cakes in a New York eatery, to moules mariniere in a French bistro, or salty fish and chips on a windy boardwalk, seafood is deliciously at home anywhere. Today, caviar is a costly extravagance, and fish is a highlight on pricey restaurant menus, so it is hard to imagine that seafood was once poor man's fare. But tastes and values have changed and The Essential Seafood Cookbook - with over 600 full-color photographs - shows how fresh seafood now enjoys respect and popularity around the world.
The Page 56: "Lobster, Rock also known as crayfish, cray, spiny lobster is firm with sweet flavor. Barbecue, grill, pan-fry, poach or steam."
