Crabs, Water, Crafts and Music

We popped on over to the big city of Washington, North Carolina, this morning to pick up a few things. We enjoyed a little stroll down the riverfront. We even stopped in at the Estuarium where we learned about the difference between a sound and a bay (the first one is bigger).

Afterwards we stopped in at a seafood store to pick up some crabs to supplement our harvest from the bay.

We picked up some hammers and had a whacking good time eating crabs seasoned with Old Bay Seasoning. Half of the group had never eaten crabs that way, so it was fun teaching them. One member of the group had to leave the room, as it grossed her out!

After lunch Joan, Rachael and I did a little water ballet to cool off. It worked so well that it started to sprinkle on us!

So we dried up and joined the rest of the group making scarves. Verlene had brought the craft--silk scarves, markers and alcohol to transfer the colors to the scarves.

Verlene is always so clever at thinking up crafts for us to do. This was no exception! Each scarf was completely unique and beautiful! We laid them out in the boat area to dry. It was great having such a good place to do the project.

I like the way mine turned out!

The women finished the jigsaw puzzle this afternoon. That went fast! It's a good thing they're quick, as tomorrow is the last day of the reunion!

Joan, Verlene and Mom were in charge of dinner tonight. We loved the Zuppa Toscana.

Then, because it is the law in Bradyville, we sat on the pier to watch the sun go down. It’s a beautiful thing!

We ended up with a little music at our house. If the Internet weren't so slow I'd upload our version of Home on the Range on bells. But, you'll just have to take my word for it--we rocked it!
