Ezell's Fish Camp, Lavaca ALSaturday, September 24, 2005
Av and I just love to go to Ezell's Fish Camp in Lavaca (AL). It is a *real* fish camp - right on the water - and the fields around it are growing cotton.....
There are a bunch of deer mounted in the entranceway, and inside the dining room are these three wild boar.
This is the swamp monkey above the cash register. Rahr!
This is the world-record blue catfish. This was done by Archie Phillips, who is the taxidermist whose sign "Get the US out of the UN" (there's a new one up now, but I don't remember what it is) can be seen from I-20/59 in Birmingham.
First they bring out Lance Captain's Wafers (the best), a lemon, cocktail and tartar sauce, and their coleslaw - which is so delicious!
Av loves their fried pickles, even though we can't even eat half of what they bring out. They are so yummy though!
Here's my dinner - catfish fillets. Yummy!
Ezell's is open seven days a week, and it's so much fun just to go and sit by the water. One time after a storm, there was a lot of tree branches in the water, and we got to watch what I think was an egret just floating all the way down the river on one of the logs. Nice!
