Bill has some crab on board Cricket
And I'm gonna get me some
Back at the crabshack. Got a fire going. Melting some butter.
Olivia, Andy, Michelle look attentive - it's early.
This is part of the first batch - 10 eventually
Olivia attacks the first round while Michelle kibitztes
Olvia dictates crab bib fashion for the Shack. Carol tries to conform.
Calm, but hungry. Big bowl of crab - empty plates. Not for long.
Meanwhile, a second batch is sitting at the ready.
including a few spare parts.
OK - now it's getting serious. Carol and Olivia are keeping an eye on Andy - with good reason.
Andy is SO focused. Michelle appears to be simultaneously applying lemon and picking for crabmeat! What a multitasker.
Andy fends off an attempted crab grab by Olivia (Andy's approach is to build a crab meat mountain before eating any.) It's so tempting.
Andy's crabmeat mountain is ready. A bit of lemon water and then ...
Kim demonstrates professional (sometimes embarrassing) crab sucking skills. Andy - still focused.
Eating's over. Let's walk down to the beach. Carol and Andy basking at the beach.
A perfect day in Moss Beach!
Kim fights the elements to get her camera out.
A lovely day in Moss Beach! Andy and Carol hang on. Kim tries to not get blown away.
Andy loans his bowler hat to Kim - oh, thanks so much.
Well, there was this panties thing from the last time and then ... oh, nevermind. All Hail Andy! (And Kim.)
Michelle and Olivia head back from the beach. Look carefully to see Tucker - the Very Black Dog! on the right.
Andy - just flirting with us. (Now we're at Olivia's)
Cannot be explained. Tucker alarmed. Olivia amazed. Andy - resplendent! He wins the panties contest. Hands (butt?) down.
And then - a lovely persimmon tort from Olivia.
To go with Olivia's tea ceremony. From the ridiculous to the sublime.
Sublime indeed. Olivia's tea machine from China. So lovely.
Olivia starts the tea.
Carol and Andy (now in civilized mode) attend.
OK - returning to ridiculous form. Pretty panties: Michelle, Carol, Kim, and Olivia (no-panties) Wu.
