Crisfield, Bicycles, and Eddie Heath's Crab Pots


I Captured these bikers passing Main and Eighth St. in Crisfield, on a beautiful sunny day. Across the street is Eddie Heath's Crab Pots business. And he is one busy person this time of year. Just look at all those crab pots!

I tried to take a photo of Eddie sitting at his desk, but he was running around trying to get a million things done, including trying to get a load of crab pots ready to be shipped off to New Jersey. So I did the next best thing and took some photos of his famous crab pots.

Thanks, Eddie, for letting me stomp all over the place. We have such nice people here.

Crisfield, as my blogging friends around the world know, is a working water town. It was built on the seafood industry, and it is a town steeped in history.

If you are looking for a relaxing vacation, you will love Crisfield. No traffic, lots of friendly people, and a beautiful bay.

Pack up your bikes, scooters, or walking shoes, and head to Crisfield. If you have pets, you might want to bring them with you because, like a lot of people, you might just want to stay - forever. Once you catch the fever, there is no cure.

This is the first time I have seen stateof the art crab pots. Most of the crab pots are home made. One advantage a friend tells me, no body will steal your losuy crab pots.


I love crabs, especially the way the Singaporeons kill the pure taste with loads of chilli and spices.

My fondiest memory is the giant crab at the San francsico fishermen's wharf. It's been 35 years, and I still talk about it.

I suspect we will see more of the red pots in Friday's painting the town red shoot out? I think the crabs don't stand a chance.

Ann: So they make their own crab pots in Auckland? That is funny about no one stealing them. Around here, no one has to worry about that.

Mildred: Come on for a visit.

Keats the Sunshine Girl: I was surprised at how many people think a crab pot is an actually "pot."

Butler and Bagman: I may have saved one for tomorrow. You will have to wait and see.

I had no idea that crab pots come in such brilliant colors...probably easier to detect under water, if one gets loose or something.

The first pic could be used for tomorrows post..."Paint the town red"...(you probably already thought about this).

When I first saw your first picture I thought you already posted for the Friday's shootout hahaha. Most of your photos are red :-) I love the colorful crab pots, first time I've seen these.

I was a bit like a crab this week, but too darn tough to eat! Can we go fishing for crabs while I am there :)

I sure can cook up a good crab this and that...
