crab run

Once a year, at the end of summer when the water is warmest, our local land crabs make a run for the beach to wash their fertilized eggs into the surf. The eggs hatch in the sea and the juvenile crabs eventually make their way back to land. The last few nights we've had hundreds of crabs doing this annual ritual. Lucky has found this spectacle more exciting than you can imagine!
