It seems like time flies by faster and faster. Our daughter graduated from both high school and community college in June. We are so proud of her! June was filled with graduation-related activities and celebrations to recognize her hard work.
Very soon after, we took a week-long family vacation in nearby Discover Bay. Since the resort was situated right on the bay, we brought our boat along and went crabbing. Our daughter even drove the boat for a while.
The bottom shelf of the freezer is now filled with fresh Red Rock and Dungeness crab. We like to live back the crab while still on the boat and then when we get home we clean it and freeze it raw (see my previous post about how to live back crabs). Below are a couple photos from a night at the resort eating some of the crabs. Since we were dipping the crab in butter (vegan butter for me and my daughter), we also steamed artichokes and potatoes that I had brought along from our garden, for dipping those into the butter, too. I also put home-grown chives on the potatoes; this is my first year growing chives. That was quite a feast we had!
Other fun during our vacation included learning to play poker and putting together several puzzles. We also went for a walk on a section of the Olympic Discovery Trail and were amazed when we found the trail's end.
