Lost shoes and blue crabs

This is a picture of the sand bar that claimed a shoe or two when I was younger.  It's also the only time I've seen blue crabs in their natural environment.  There were two hanging out in a tide pool just like the one in the picture.  It was a big deal that day, none of us had ever seen such large crabs before.  They are very beautiful and way more colorful than any crabs we were used to seeing. 

As I was standing on the sand taking this photo my shoes started sinking in, it must have something to do with the way the water drains out during the tide change.  At least if I ruin shoes now my mom won't get pissed :)
