Winthrop Beach Day

This past weekend I was lucky enough to spend some time with the kids on Winthrop Beach for the Winthrop Beach Day event. The weather was great and the live music was amazing. A bunch of kids joined me along the beach and in the water with dip nets in hand to capture as many creatures as we could. I was amongst expert crab collectors and one sand shrimp specialist. By the end of the afternoon we had 3 buckets filled with Asian Shore crabs, Green crabs, Red Rock crabs, Sand Shrimp, Clams, and Hermit crabs. We also found an unusual crab skeleton and it turns out it was a Lady crab. Thanks to my many collectors we had a lot of fun animals to play with!
