So you ask, where in the world is Steinhatche and how in the world do you scallop?? Steinhatche is a little town located on the Gulf of Mexico at 29°40′16″N 83°23′15″W / 29.67111°N 83.3875°W / 29.67111; -83.3875. It has just over 1,000 residents and is known for fishing and scalloping. My mother has owned a little bungalow in Steinhatche for about 10 years now. I'm not a big fan of the town or fishing, however I do love a good day on the boat and I do love to scallop so I usually make a trip about once a year. Almost every year my cousin Emily goes with me as her and I are the scalloping masters and we like to compete against each other for the most scallops. This year we brought a few extras along who were first time scallopers. Oh yeah scalloping is just like an Easter Egg hunt, only in the water and more for grown-ups and big kids. You should try it some time!

Robert was the first one in the water, like his mother fear is usually not an option.

These two make my heart smile.
Maxwell's first time scalloping. He was a little scared at first but after several hours warmed right up. If I would have had him on the boat one more day, he would have mastered scalloping.
