Hunting for blue crabs on Labor day weekend...

Labor day is a holiday that was created to celebrate the strength and determination of the trade and labor organizations in 1882 also known was "Working man's holiday".  But today, it's a day of rest, BBQ, pool parties, beach day, shopping day or first day of NFL football season.  For most kids, it represents the last day of the summer.  Labor Day seems to affect everyone in a different way.
So how are you celebrating this weekend holiday?

As for me and mine, we are hunting for a beach day and some steamed blue crabs.. :-)
Why beach and crabs you might ask?  Well, summer has past me by so quickly that I haven't had time to really enjoy the sun, beach and crabs.  I'm not much of a beach person but love to look at the ocean and the waves. It reminds me of the awesomeness of our God and his handy work.

So today, we drove down to Dover, DE to start our hunt for crab shacks.  We typically go to Atlantic City, NJ or Baltimore, MD for blue crabs but this time, we wanted to find a less touristy area to find local hidden gems for steamed crabs..

We were debating on where to stop for lunch.  We could stop before Dover or wait until we get to Dover to grab lunch.  We decided to stop for lunch before Dover and took a slight detour to Delaware City, DE to try blue crabs at Kathy's Crab House.  We're glad we did..

We got there at 11:30 and of course we were the first ones there.  We had indoor or screen patio seating areas to choose from.  Since it was such a nice day, we decided to sit in the screened patio.  It was nicely decorated and had a nice breeze coming from the outside.

The menu had lots of selection which we did not get deterred.  We stuck to our original plans and ordered half a dozen large blue crabs for $25 and some claim strips.  The price at Kathy's was much more reasonable as compared to Baltimore prices.  The crabs were so fresh, juicy and meaty.. Yummm.  It took us 2 hours to eat the 6 crabs..(yes I know, we are slow crab eaters).  We took our time and enjoyed every single ounce of the crab meat.
That's the beginning of our Labor day weekend...  Off to do more crab hunting for Day 2.
