Melissa & Dave - Adventures at Sea

How many crabs did you catch?

Our original plan was to head towards home through Deception Pass, but the fog and rain nixed that idea so we ended up in Anacortes.  From there it was through the Swinomish Channel to Coupville on Whidbey Island.  While we were at anchor, Melissa heard a bunch of hollering from a boat nearby.  Not clear what the commotion was, but then they sped towards our boat.  Thinking maybe they needed help, Melissa went to the deck.  Big grins on both their faces, "We saw you have a crab trap.  You like crab?" "Yes", Melissa replied somewhat puzzled.  "Well you want some?  We just pulled up 10 big ones and we can't possibly eat them."  So they gave us three huge crabs.  Yum.
