How about old Bowens Island Resturaunt B.H. (Before Hugo, as all time in Charleston seems to be measured) and rightly so. With its missing side wall and bi-valves so fresh that they were probably filtering their lives away, going about their own business in a pluff mud world about the same time that you were parking the car. Brought to your rickety card table from the fire pit half inside the room on a snow shovel. The ONLY true use for one of those damn things.
Were there sweeter words ever written on the specials board at the Sandbar than "All you Can Eat" .
My wife and I had our first date there, and once on my birthday I consumed 14 pans of the low country delicacies as the entire staff watched from the kitchen window. You could hear the groans everytime I started a fresh batch.Patiently they waited for the big bastard to leave so that they could close for the night.( God Bless You Darell) Oysters will always make room for another one.

Lord sometimes life is so simple.
Oysters were put on the earth to teach us some very basic things.
1.How simple things can be, and simple is always good.
2. Never judge anything by appearance, or man would have never eaten the first one.
3. Never say theres nothing to eat until you've checked everywhere.
4. Never eat oysters in a state with no ocean and alot of sheep.
5. Never pay for a mud bath when you can get one AND a meal for free.
6. One mans view is another mans grocery store.
7. Other than Christmas eve Santa uses that big red bag to store a buschel or two.
8. How blessed we are to be who we are,where we are, when we are, with what we have.....
