I’m not really an oyster person. Though I often feel like oysters are pretty polarizing as a food item (sort of like cilantro, you either love it or you hate it) I fall squarely in the middle. I don’t love oysters but I don’t find them repulsive as many do. That said, because of the price of oysters, I usually don’t bother with them. But when my friends Rita and Damon came up to San Francisco for a wedding, they decided to come a day early so they could road trip to Tomales Bay and get some oysters directly from the farm at * Hog Island Oyster Company * . I’ll pretty much use any excuse to hang out with my friends and getting our friends Amy and Carlos to join us was a bonus! Of course, oysters (and my friends) make an awesome photo subject and after eating a dozen or so, I think I might have changed my mind about not loving them. Now I just need another excuse to get up there. Come back Rita and Damon!
