Just another great weekend, that's all.

This is my boat. Well one of them. I do have a smaller one too.



Talk about a nice day at the beach. The sign on the left says no dogs. They are prohibited because this is a bird nesting island.



Saturday at the market went well. We had a great time even though the crowd was less than the week before. The weather was beautiful and we made a lot of sales. It was just a great day. Then Sunday afternoon we decided to take a boat ride out to a local island. There were a few people out there but more creatures than people. I tried my hand at fishing but the water temperature is still too cold so I just did a little beach combing. The beach was littered with horseshoe crabs so I decided to save as many as I could by returning them to the water. Many of them were stranded and upside down so it would only be a matter of time before they cooked in the sun. I thought that some of you who had never seen one might find this interesting so I did a video of me letting one of them go. I am sorry about the audio but it was windy as you will soon find out.

I have photos too but I wanted to get this out ASAP. I will post the photos at a later date.





Have a great day,



Greg

I was at the beach last week. I may share pics later. This reminded me of the starfish story. You made a difference for that crab. b

I admire all of the sea life you saved. As hot as it was this weekend, the upside down crab didn't have a chance without you.

Looks like you had a wonderful time.

It's good to have a boat. It's better to have two boats. I desperately want to dig my toes in that sand!

Rachel said...

Oh. My. Word. I cannot believe you a) got that close to that crab and b) actually picked it up!!! I would have been scared to death. :)

Good for you Greg! Great video too. Sounds like a wonderful place to live. We had hot, hot weather last week, but now it has cooled down to what we would call cool spring weather.

Some beautiful photos! I think you have a great place to boat.
What do you sell at the market?

Scarlet said...

What a treat! I'd never seen one up close before...and you saved him! You're my hero, Greg!! :)

For some reason I thought you would have a bit more of a southern accent. Glad you had a nice weekend and you were able to save the crab.
