It’s just hell to live in a place …

… where crab is so plentiful people have to give away their surplus.

Two cooked crabs in a cooler

Thank you, furrydoc!

I haven’t opened and eaten a whole crab since I was 19. And that was on a beach in San Francisco, where the crab was accompanied by large torn chunks of French bread and I was accompanied by … a tall, dark stranger.

Might not have the ambiance this time and my dinner companions will all be short, four-legged and hairy. But this’ll be a delicious adventure.

    YUMMM! In my neck of the woods, the soft-shelled blue crab is the delicacy of choice, but I’ve eaten dungeness crabs in Seattle and thought I was in heaven.

    Seafood (like tomatoes) just can’t be beat when it’s fresh.

    I approve of people eating bugs.

    Kent, that’s “people eating bugs that eat the stuff that sinks to the bottom of the ocean.”

    I remember fighting one monster when I was in Bandon – normally one of the small ones getting ahold of me as I pulled it out of the pot was no big deal, he’ just get flicked into the bay. But the one that got me that time was a keeper and we had to go mano y clawo, man versus scavenger, to get him off me and into the ice chest.

    An Eastern Shore comment if there ever was one. You forgot the corn, though.

    Is it summer yet?

    It’s good to hear that you’ve upgraded your dining companions. Your new ones will pay very close attention to you; hang on every word, watch every move that you make, idolize…
