the couple sitting beside us suggested we go cabbing at Kelly's Marina in Rockaway Beach.
So the next day we did just that.
Kelly's Marina was a fascinating spot. Very informal and very popular with locals. Always a good sign. And so eclectic it is almost impossible to describe.
|Don't you love the car?|
|Looking back from the crabbing wharf|
|Crab Baskets for Rent - already loaded with fish heads|
The basket had a rope attached, the idea is that you toss the basket into the water, hanging on to the rope, then wait 20 minutes or so:
and pull it in quickly (the crab will get out the top of the basket if you are not fast enough) and count your catch.

|This one was female and was returned to the ocean.|
But Kelly's is ready for that. They sell crab, clams and oysters to take home. Or they will boil the crab and clams right there and you can eat them at one of their many informal dining areas.
|Under a shelter if the weather is not the best|
|Around the fire pit or at a picnic table overlooking the water|
|Or at this large table made with one very wide board|
And, if you want to spend the night and try your luck the next day, there is a small RV parking area with electric and water hook-ups overlooking the docks:
All in all a great spot run by lovely people.
