Summer snapshot! This past weekend, while on a romantic beach side walk , my husband and I wandered down a pier in the evening and came across a few people fishing. Most were immigrants from China and it turns out, they were not fishing but crabbing with ring nets. Apparently, the Pacific Ocean in this area is full of Dungeness and Red Rock crabs.
We hung around for a bit until one of the traps was pulled out and seemed to be full of crabs! The gentleman explained to us all the females and young crabs had to be returned to the ocean. The bait he was using was chicken and he said each time he goes crabbing, he always returns home with a bunch of full sized ones. However, he said you need 4 per person to make a really good dish!
I thought I would share this random summer moment as part of my appreciation of lazy summer days!
