Excitement at the Coast

Yesterday was opening day of the Dungeness Crab season on the Oregon Coast.  We wandered around the Bayfront in Newport Sunday; crab pots were in abundance in anticipation of the day.

I loved seeing the colorful crab pots lined up everywhere:

Every boat has its crab pots
The Redeemer with its crab pots
Anticipation is palpable

What a great day at the Bayfront, with the sense of excitement and anticipation for this late season to start.  Wish I had been there to see the boats come back in with their hauls!


In this blog, you will find not only an exploration of all that is good in our knitterly lives, but also a variety of posts tying together my passions for writing, photography, and my home state of Oregon.

    1. I love to eat crabmeat! I don’t like to cook it! 😉 When I buy it, the work has already been done – i.e., cooked and cleaned. My fave dish is crab eggs benedict. Yumm!!!

      1. Mmm! Eggs benedict is one of my favorite dishes to eat out. I learned how to eat crab since I was young. My mum taught me how to clean it and steam it. My dad would usually put a shot of Samurai whiskey in the stomach that we would share.
