Crabbing & Outdoor Cooking
Eastern Shore Adventure
Kayaking, Crabbing, and Outdoor Cooking
July 18th, 2009
Twelve participants joined the staff of the BOW program for a day of fun on Maryland’s eastern shore at Wye Island NRMA. The day began with basic kayaking instruction including paddling techniques and safety. After completing the land instruction, the participants were taken to the water for a guided kayaking trip. They set out paddling on the Wye East River, Granary Creek and Dividing Creek along the scenic Wye Island and were able to enjoy plenty of wildlife viewing opportunities along the way.
After completing the guided kayaking tour the participants learned various crabbing techniques and were able to catch a few crabs!! They then took an active role in preparing lunch which consisted of crabs and a sampling of food prepared over the fire- including cream of crab soup, corn bread, pineapple upside-down cake and stew. A fine end to a great day! A special thanks to all who helped with the days events.
