Field Notes
We are happy because we got to explore and enjoy Maine's rocky coastline. We saw bright blue oceans, sunny skies, slimy seaweed, and salty mud. We were surprised to have found so many small and large crabs in our small area.

Thank you for commenting!

That's right! It's not a shore crab. Any thoughts on what it is?

Ignore my earlier question. I just saw your other submission! :)
