There is a change in crabbing and I guess it is a sign that the season is coming to an end. While the quantity of crabs are there (in the trap) they are all very small so on each trip out now we are getting just one or two claws of legal size. The halycyon days of 32 big claws and a party for 8 people seem very distant now!
But! We still managed to have a little small gathering with our "across the street" neighbours yesterday. We had 9 claws which meant three each as F preferred not to eat and stuck to meat and cheese.
Oh! And devilled eggs. Which reminds me, look at this double yolk egg I got yesterday. Apparently it means an older hen (like humans: the chances of twins going up when a woman is older).
First time I've ever seen one of these!
After all those yummy claws we had a dessert of key lime pie and then a dip in the pool - fun and chats for the evening. A fabulous evening as always with a lovely couple.
I shall keep you updated on whether this is the end of season or not. We are hoping for one more meal of just ourselves and go out with a bang! Maybe a bottle of prosecco thrown in too for good measure ;)
