Ahh, walks on the beach

Postby duxrus » Mon Aug 13, 2012 4:56 pm

Funny how taxidermists can turn a vacation into "work". Luckily I have my two boys to help with the scavanging :grooving:

Here is FRESH dinner right out of the traps :thumbsup:

Luckily I didn't have to boil a ton of blue mussels this trip to bring back. The tide brought bags of already "dead" ones to shore.( That isn't a small box) :grooving:

...And what Taxidermist could pass a cool looking piece of driftwood up ? Not sure how I will be getting it home but it is atleast safe until I figure that out. :tongue:

I can't wait to get back come December to cash in on the sea ducks....and do a little more "habitat" collecting :smile:

Kids also got to watch an Osprey dive down from the Heavans to catch a pretty decent sized fish, a family of sea otters playing in the waves, and daddy "fight" giant sunstars (YUCK) that got into the crab traps. GOOD TIMES :beer:

If I lived out there I would have a building full of the cool stuff I see but have to just leave it since you can only fit so much into a suitcase. :lol3: You would have laughed at how far I had to carry that piece up and over downfalls in "gooey" low tide bank. I just had to rescue it from the sea.... :banana:
