Hot Nuts

by Steve on July 25, 2011


“Peanut Point” on Lake Martin. You won’t find it on a map but the locals all know it by that name. An aquatic drive-through of sorts, it’s situated on a point (naturally) across from a island on a pass so narrow and shallow you can walk it without getting your shirt wet.

Pull up to the nice beach, jump out and buy a bag of that southern beer snack available in regular or Cajun flavor. I prefer the spicy ones since regular hot boiled peanuts aren’t really a flavor thing as much as a texture that I’ve never grown used to even though I’ve lived in the south for over 20 years. Certain things just shouldn’t be boiled. Nuts and okra come to mind.

What a fun day Mark and I had with you visiting peanut point. I think “Merlin” enjoyed it as well. Pretty much can guarantee that that is the first wood boat to visit the point!
