Autumn in Washington

Eliza and I were in DC last weekend. It was a refreshing break from the Austin heat and rain. And on the cab ride in, it was nice to see some colors from the season that Texas forgot: autumn.

Our first meal was with all of our parents plus my brother and sister-in-law at Clyde’s, a DC standby. We jumped at the chance to eat seafood, especially some raw oysters.

Eliza had the mussels. No surprises there.

I went for the lobster, because it was pretty reasonably priced at $17.99 for a 1.25 pounder. (Incidentally, there’s a very interesting story behind why lobster has recently become so plentiful and cheap.) This one looks angry.

I was forced to wear the bib. Laugh it up, everyone!
