It was a beautiful day in Wellfleet on Saturday, and I was incredibly excited to attend their annual Oyster Festival. What I thought would be a small, local food fair turned out to be a pretty huge deal (which we discovered when we hit traffic about seven miles from downtown Wellfleet). Tons of people everywhere, most of them happily gorging themselves on plates of freshly shucked oysters (average price was about $1.50/each).
In addition to oysters, there was beer (including the Sam Adams Oyster Stout, made with actual oysters), clams, chowder, stew, and the occasional hot dog. But mostly, there were oysters. And since that is what I came for, I was extremely content.
