An Afternoon Crabbing

One of our favourite activities over the holidays was an afternoon crabbing here in our seaside town of Weston-super-Mare.

Armed with our crabbing lines and weights we heading down to Marine Lake. The children has fun positioning themselves along the water’s edge and patiently waited for the crabs to bite.

After a little trial and error we realised that a huge piece of bacon was better then a small amount.

The boys & Maysie were really pleased with their hall of crustaceans, and we were pleased that they had been so well entertained all afternoon.

It’s really nice living in a seaside town sometimes, for fun activities such as this.

  • Melksham Mum - That brings memories of crabbing when I was little back in Norfolk in the harbour at Wells – now my legs go to jelly when I approach the edge and look down! This looks like a lovely spot. I haven’t been to Weston in years and OH suggested only this morning I take the kiddies when he pops into work tomorrow! I may just do that :)

  • Coombe Mill - Fiona - Crabbing is a fun activity for the whole family and I can see they were successful! Thanks for linking up and sharing your outdoor fun with Country Kids.

  • Emily Beale Photography - Oh, you should do. The little shops on these front sell everything you need!

  • Emily Beale Photography - Thanks Fiona, yes this was really fun, every body enjoyed it. I should have mentioned our crab race to release then back to the sea. We all gasped when we forgot to set the crabs in the right direction and they all ran to the side towards our toes!

  • Mums do travel - Crabbing looks like a great family activity – I think my children would love it.

  • brinabird and son - Looks like fun! I love the jars to put the crabs in. I would love to live closer to the sea.

  • Kriss MacDonald - Wonderful pix of your crabbing adventure with kids

  • Emily Beale Photography - Thanks Kriss, we really had fun 😉

  • Emily Beale Photography - We don’t make enough of being so close, isn’t that sad. We do love a trip down to the water’s edge when the tide is in, especially in the evening.

  • Emily Beale Photography - It really was fun. And no crabs we harmed in the making of this blog post :)

  • sonia constant - I love crabbing, I used to go to Blakeney with my grandparents every year and we used to crab all day long. I loved it. Especially when you watch them all scurry back in to the sea when you are finished!

    Great fun.

    Fantastic photos.

  • Emily Beale Photography - Thanks Sonia. It really was more fun then I had anticipated! The scurry back is the best bit :)
