This is a story that I have been meaning to share with you all for a long time. Things just always seemed to keep coming up. Every time I put it on my schedule something would happen, and I would move it around. So, I am just now sharing it with you and hope that you can forgive me for the lateness of it. However, I think now is the perfect time to share it. We have gotten through the holidays and are now stuck in the cold of the winter months. Let me share with you the day my brother went up against a crab.
When we went to Botany Bay, SC we saw all sorts of wildlife. One thing that was amazing was the crabs that were running across the road. Now we didn’t know there were crabs. What happened was we saw something and stopped the car to see what it was. The place we stopped at wasn’t the best. I mean they had beware of the alligator signs everywhere but that wasn’t what we saw. In fact, the entire time I was down there we didn’t see an alligator once.
Anyway, what we saw were tiny crabs running across the road. I mean like hundreds of tiny crabs running around the road. My brother said he would get out and take a picture for me. This one crab apparently got super irritated because it went into defense mode. Check out the pictures of the crab getting ready to attack my brother! I wish I could share the video we made because my brother was screaming like a girl. It was the funniest thing. However, our language wasn’t kid-friendly as we were laughing. That trip we discovered that when the kids weren’t around (it was a few days with no kids at all) we talked like sailors!
We had the best time visiting Botany Bay. Typically, something like that wouldn’t be my cup of tea but with the right people we had a blast. Of course, we did have one small incident where I kept hitting my brother in his bad arm. One that he tore his bicep and pulled a whole bunch of stuff. The next day he said it was sore from all my hitting. He got over it though, after all, I hit like a girl. He doesn’t!
If you ever have the chance to visit Botany Bay, SC I would highly recommend that you go. They have a self guided tour that you drive through filled with information. You wouldn’t think there is much to see other than water and an alligator or two. Still we didn’t see one and I’m feeling some kind of way about that. With my luck I probably would have gotten eaten by one if we had seen it. Back to why you should visit! There is a rich history there beyond the wildlife that I had no idea even existed. A history that I am thrilled to have learned about and can’t wait to take the kids so they can experience that history as well.
