There is a rule of thumb that oysters are to be eaten in the months with the letter ‘R’ but that really depends on what part of the world you reside in. Oysters consist of more than 400 species and augment a locale’s economy as a commodity for the food or jewelry industries. The largest oyster-producing body of water is the Chesapeake Bay but can be found throughout the world.

Several factors make it difficult for all varieties of the oyster family to form and reach full adulthood. The Franklin Institute states that out of every 1,145,000 eggs lay by female oysters, only one oyster will survive and reach maturity.

The process of oysters forming and reproducing takes place after about one year from birth. Varying between species and environment, the lifespan of an oyster range between 10-20 years but oysters are usually harvested within 2-3 years, or eaten by predators prior to reaching their full lifespan.

The Florida Seafood Festival is a two day event on November 1st and 2nd and hailed as Florida’s oldest maritime event. Every year thousands of visitors head to Battery Park in the historic town of Apalachicola. The event will feature both an oyster eating and an oyster shucking contest. It will also have its fair share of musical talent. Kellie Pickler, American Idol alum and others will headline the entertainment on Saturday night.

A cute bag that is perfect any outing is the limited edition authentic Louis Vuitton Monogram Cherry Blossom Pochette. It is ideal for a true Louis Vuitton collector who enjoys being whimsical just like Cameron Diaz.
