I’m in Delaware with family for a few days at the shore, and whenever we come to the coast the first order of business is catching fresh food from the sea or bay for dinner. Once you have eaten fresh fish, crabs or clams from the Atlantic, you definitely forgo the desire to eat in crowded and overstuffed restaurants.
My brothers Paul and Sean, along with Captain Bill have set the crab traps on the bay floor, while my niece Shana and her son Cortez have found clams in a sandbar. This is all done very early in the morning so, that we have the entire day for fishing, relaxing at the beach or shopping.
Then at the end of the day, we go back to the traps and et viola a delicious meal awaits. The family must work together in order to retrieve the catch from the ocean floor.
The crabs from Delaware have the sweetest and most succulent flavor; now I know your thinking that Maryland crabs reign supreme, but these tasty morsels were unbelievably fabulous, definitely worth the trip!

Looks and sounds like fun. Can’t think of a better way to enjoy summer vacation. And the rewards of your labor are succulent crabs and delicious fresh fish. Enjoy!!
We had the best time and the kids loved harvesting the crabs and clams for dinner!!!
Aaaahhhhhh, the beach, sand, food and family make for an exciting time. Reminder: Watch out for those man eating sharks. Nice post……………
Actually, I was definitely watching out for the sharks, which is why I told two of my brothers they had to dip into the waters first!!!
