From last summer’s beachy highlights… this summer’s highlight was sunset crabbing parties. We found a couple of families who were happy to be our crabbing partners.
There’s something very satisfying about spotting a crab and scooping it up quickly in one swift motion (before it gets a chance to scuttle off or nip your toes). Even more so when the scene is framed against a backdrop of beautifully golden and ombre sunsets.
We started a bit later in the season than most folks, so it took some patience to track down bigger sized crabs that meet the minimum size. But on one of the evenings, we hit a sweet spot and managed to catch decent haul to share between each family. Just enough for everyone to enjoy a light supper.
Freshly steamed crab for supper. So. Good.
Can’t wait for next summer.
