Crab Fest

Not a festival of my ex-wives, but a celebration of this, the meatiest of all the crabs, size for size The Dungeness Crab is possibly the most significant wild food of our area. We build our calendar around it. We have not yet forgiven our daughter for interrupting the crab season for a mere wedding.

The festival is in Port Angeles. Crabs and crab cooking dominate the event. The smell of crab is in the air.

When we arrived, I went first to the back of the tents to see the crabs and the kitchens. The booths, music and attractions didn't faze me. All I wanted was to gaze at Dungies.
