Crabby Times

Yesterday I was invited to go crabbing with friends. They have a crab trap and a dinghy, and permission to use a private beach at Possession Point, on the south tip of Whidbey Island. We spent the afternoon at the beach, puttering out occasionally to pull the crabs out of the trap, check the bait, and toss back the little ones and the females. It was fun to be involved in this activity, beautiful weather at the beach, and from that location both Mount Baker and Mount Rainier were on the horizons in all their snowy glory. Later in the day, we had a crab feast with piles of fresh seafood, melted butter, and a green salad straight from the garden to the table. Yummmmmmmm!
Afterwards I took Zuma to Maxwellton Beach to watch the sunset over the Olympics. The eagles were feeding, the air was fresh and cool, it was sweet!

I am so jealous. Can you do it again when I get up there, please?
