Johns Island Pig Roast

Tractor Rides, Johns Island, S.C.
Truth is I've been posting more pictures on Facebook lately because of the instant feedback. I'm trying not to ignore the blog but FB offers the quick reward. Feel free to connect there!

What a glorious day yesterday was. I was invited to author Josephine Humphrey's post Thanksgiving pig roast on Johns Island. I know - I am too lucky. I went with my friend Pam from US 17 Coastal Highway blog. The theme was a "cuban pig roast" so I made a sticky sweet Tres Leche cake to take with me in case anyone had room for dessert. The food was incredible.

I noticed the gentleman in blue who was with Nathalie Dupree holding his microphone down to catch the sounds of the crackling pork skin and asked him later what he was working on. He turned out to be food journalist Richard Johnson from British Street Food working on a story for BBC about food in the south. Fun! He landed on perfect setting for his story - kids fishing, tractor rides, gracious and welcoming hosts, interesting guests and delicious food.

I hope everyone has had a good weekend. Back to reality in the morning. Too soon. Too soon.

Joan, I've heard other people say the same thing regarding FB and feedback. What puzzles me is that FB is on the internet. Your blog is on the internet. Why is reading/commenting on FB any easier/faster than reading/commenting on your blog? Makes no sense to me. I personally hate FB. Would much rather read your blog.

I can post an album of the same photos on Facebook and get over 30 comments in no time. Everything gets an instant response which is rewarding and makes it tempting to be the first place to post. Even a roll over post from the blog doesn't get the same response. It is interesting. So - for the quick and sassy I tend to post there.

I've been to a pig pickin' before (when we still lived in South Carolina), but mine did not involve the company of famous people!

It looks delicious!

What great photos! I bet the pig roast was a great time, it was a PERFECT DAY! I love your photos on FB. I usually bop around to my favorite blogs a few times a week, but can keep up with FB quicker... I check that daily ;) Too funny, the man bringing you lunch (the pig)! Enjoy your blog as always!

Thanks Barbara! It is so tempting to toss a quick photo on Facebook. So far I am trying to do both.

This was a pretty cool crowd! I'll do another post and show the cute little cabin that was featured in a movie.
