Last week we set out on a perfect October day to shoot the Oregon Bounty Wanderfeast video about crabbing, in the coastal bay town of Garibaldi. Crabbing is a rite of passage for Oregonians, and after 7 years in the state, I still hadn’t experienced the ritual. Chef John Newman, of Newmans at 988 restaurant in Cannon Beach is an expert at all things Dungeness, so my kids and I followed the production crew and John to see what we could pull up. I didn’t anticipate how thrilling it would be—my kids absolutely squealing with excitement as they hauled up a pot of crabs for the first time. So easy, affordable and so incredibly memorable.
