Feeling crabby? Head to the Washington Coast.
The 25th Annual Westport Crab Races and Crab Feed is set for April 21-22.
Tap a leggy crab of good breeding and put it on the race course against other competitiors.
Or soak a crab pot for a chance at winning cash prizes. Thanks to the Washington Dungeness Crab Fishermen’s Association, the Westport Marina has been seeded with ocean-sized Dungeness for the Saturday and Sunday Crab Derby, with a top prize of $1,000.
Some people come just to feast on crab, which is served a variety of ways.
I notice the promoters still offer the option of hot dogs for kids.
