Of Whitebait

We went to the Worm's Head for lunch today

Not a peculiar name for a pub but a spit of land into the sea at the furthest point of the Gower peninsular. There is a causeway at low tide so you can go and see seals basking on the rocks.

Lunch was fresh fish. These poor little things were swimming last night, But I think whitebait tastes too good to live. I almost got V to eat one until he saw a tiny eye glaring at him through the breadcrumbs.
%&($! Thats a whole thing!
Yup *crunching with relish*
%&($! *shuddering at the monster that he married*
said monster just giggles

The view from the table

We sat there in the afternoon sun watching some poor dab try to surf in knee high waves while two loonies parascended off the facing mountain. I debated whether I would be any good at having a go. V thought it would be asking for trouble - especially after whitebait.

We finished off with Joe's ice cream down the marina. It was a pleasant afternoon.

Faantastic pics, made me yearn for the sea again. Absolutely beautiful.

Minus the deep-fried fishies (I'm with V... shudder! You eat them whole?? guts and bones and all??)

:o) is pretty gross if you think about it, so don't think about it and enjoy the taste!
(advice for life I think)

Looks like a lovely afternoon. Although, I don't really think I could eat anything that was looking at me either.

Sian- The sea is so beautiful. But I have to side with V, I couldn't bring myself to eat it whole, but I'm sure they were delicious.

Well, I'm not sure about the fisheyes either...but then again - if you'e in a place called Worm's Head, it somehow seems more like the perfect thing to do...and ice cream is a fitting end to any feast or outing. Or for staying home.

*Grin* I'm with V on this one. I cannot imagine eatting a whole fish, eyes and innards and bones and all. Just..... YUCK!!!!

The other pics are great, though!

Have a fantastic week, Sian!
