Beach art

West coast crabs are usually called “Dungeness” crabs, named for our region where they’re found in abundance. I didn’t move here simply because crab is one of my favorite foods, though it did aid in my overall enthusiasm for this place.

I don’t know what colored this one; the inside of a crab shell isn’t usually this soft shade of lavender. But it made for an interesting piece of flotsam on the beach.

  1. Nature doing its work again! It’s more than just interesting. . .it is a beautiful image. I, too, love crab but know so little about these delectable creatures. Guess it’s research time again!

  2. After a little research I learned more about your crabs and now understand why crab meat is expensive. The mating and time of maturation is not exactly a short span of time.
