Gone Crabbin’

So I guess you can imagine what we did on the Sunday…

We gathered the buckets, nets and lines from the garage, stopped off to get some fish heads but ended up with some leftover prawns (very posh bait) and headed to the pontoon..

Jamie sorting out the bait…

We started crabbing on one side of the pontoon, to suddenly realise the tide was going the wrong way, so we had to make a brisk change!

We caught 27 crabs, can you believe it, but we did tip them all back in the sea, then weren’t quite big enough to feast on 😉

The highlight of our day had to be Neil, the seal that just kept popping up to see what all the fuss was about…

And there you have it, our delightful relaxing and much needed weekend away in West Mersea!
