An afternoon cruisin' and crabbin'
Well as you can all see, my stealthy YouTube test didn't work so well for the crabbing video. The lamb one went up fine. Alas!
Happy took mom (check out the shoes), Danielle, me and Danielle's friend Austin out on the fishing boat for a cruise around the harbor. Perfect weather, beer and crabs! After we toured the homes on the bay (the Kellogg mansion was my favorite) we dropped anchor for a bit and read and sunned on the shore (no manatee sightings but did see some dolphins) we motored over to their crab traps and found crabs in every one! The last trap had the biggest one. Making a special guest appearance was my favorite sea creature- the Sea Horse! Poor little thing was lodged in the corner of the trap but we wiggled him out, took a glamour shot and then set him free.
Austin's favorite part was witnessing me tinkle from the back of the boat. His family is fairly conservative and he just couldn't believe I whipped it out and let it go off the bow. As Danielle told him, "Better to wiz and bear the shame than hold it in and bear the pain!"
Is that my niece or what?
