MISS ANNIE'S CRAB CASSEROLE

 
INSPIRED BY THE SEASHORE
 

"If we win the lottery, there is no question where we would be!"
There is something so awakening when living near the ocean. While living in Maine, Darling and I would drive down to the bay and just stroll along the walking trails, watching the sailboats, lobster boats and island ferries. We would dream about owning one of those stunningly beautiful sailboats one day. It was almost as if we could not stay away from such a magical place. Those old Victorian homes overlooked this postcard scene and I always wondered what that would be like....to wake up to that beauty each morning! It became quite apparent that many people shared our love for this Oceanside view. It cost nothing...all of that serenity. Sometimes, it may be that winning the lottery is just a state of mind.
