Hi everyone,

We also took Gabrielle crabbing for blue crabs.

When this sixth-generation Shaw family member saw large, medium, and small blue crabs in our two crab baskets hanging from the pier, she laughed with joy and, hurriedly, caught hold of the cord, attached to the crab basket, and pulled it out of the water to the pier. It was such pleasure to see so much joy in our granddaughter catching and looking at the pretty blue crabs.

That was a good feeling and pretty joy I experienced, along with my husband, her grandpa, to see our granddaughter overjoyed about crabbing. Surely, it was a far cry from her beautiful home city, Atlanta, with its concrete.
