just south of Wheeler, OR is one of those places from the past.... from maybe 40 years ago, maybe longer ... where you can buy fresh-just-caught crab. you choose the one you want from the tank of live ones and it gets cooked for you while you wait. there is also a dock where you can do your own crabbing and folks were out there pulling up nets full of 'em. or rent a little motor boat and go out in the bay and catch them. it was a funky old place... very interesting. Linda bought a crab to take home, and while it cooked, we watched the seagulls, and the people and amused ourselves with some picture-taking. I'd have bought one, too, but had just spent all my $$$ on smoked salmon to take home to Jim.
