We went crabbing and oyster digging at Twanoh State Park by Hood Canel.  We got up at 5:00am and after meeting with other families at 6:20am, we headed for the park.

Everyone was wearing a life jacket.   We were going for a boat ride to a floating deck.

After putting on a life jacket, Oliver could hardly move.

This was the boat that took us to the floating deck for crabbing.
Frank was the Captain.

Mimi touched the starfish that was caught mistakenly.  She was amazed how soft a starfish was.

This was what we used to catch crabs.   The chicken bones attracted a lot of crabs, but we could only keep those that were male and measured 6 inches wide

Mimi was fishing and she kept asking, "Where is the fish?  Why does it take so long to catch a fish?"
It wasn't her lucky day!

Look!  Crabs.
Be careful.  They do bite.
