While I was walking along an estuary in the Hood Canal the other day, I was startled by a cry in a small water channel at low tide. It was a newborn harbor seal pup swimming unattended. It appeared to be only a few days old since the pink umbilical cord was still hanging down from the pup’s belly. There was no sign of the mom or other seals nearby. The pup was as curious about me as I was about him.

Dungeness crab romaine salad with eggs

A friend and I went crabbing the other day off in Puget Sound within sight of the Space Needle. Our efforts were rewarded with a nice haul of Dungeness crabs. Because we are in the middle of a heat wave, I decided to serve a cold crab salad for dinner today. The salad included romaine lettuce, hard-boiled eggs, Parmesan cheese shavings, and of course, generous clumps of Dungeness crab meat and claws.  A great way to enjoy freshly caught crab from the Puget Sound.
