Turkey Leg or Crab Cake?

Last week we went to Historic St. Mary's City in south eastern Maryland for our 6th Wedding Anniversary. It was a brilliant idea and a fabulous family day.


 It was much like a mini-Rennaissance festival, but Colonial America Festival. Fun Fun!

 At lunch time, we checked out the small list of options in the food barn. There were burgers, turkey legs, crab cakes, and hot dogs. I cannot recall if there was anything else. We had brought tons of water with us, so we didn't have to spend tons on pop and bottled water. We actually bought a 24 pack of bottled water on the way at Target for $3.49. Sweet. Each bottle was $1 at the place, so we rocked that. We ended up ordering a hot dog for the kid-boy ($2), a Turkey Leg ($5) and a crab cake ($10) to share. Stan downed the dog right quick and ate some of our turkey leg.

L-dog downed the crab cake, but he gave me a bite or two. I didn't much like it. Sarah and I handled the turkey leg.

There was no way to finish it. We kept on for about a half an hour, taking bites only to discover a whole new monster piece down there.

Stan took this picture.

It was an Energizer Turkey Leg, it kept going and going and going ...

Long story short, we spent $17 on the meal but could have probably all eaten off of that turkey leg.

On the way home, we ate at Chick-fil-A for about $14.

Entry to the festival was $20 ($10 each per adult and free for the kids).

All in all, not too shabby on the price for a FULL day of fun!

We almost went to the beach afterwards, but it was 5 o'clock already, and it cost another $5 a person to get into the park at Point Look Out. Booo! An hour of swimming for $20!? No, how about home instead. We slept very well that night. Very well.
