Gulf Crab

Oil on Gallery-Wrapped Canvas

As an Eastern Seaboard resident, I was well-acquainted with the exquisite blue crabs from the Chesapeake Bay.  Their delectable meat, kissed with Old Bay seasoning and dipped in vinegar is an incomparable eating experience.  Imagine my surprise one year upon visiting a local crab house in Virginia and finding out that the crabs were flown in from Texas!

Now a resident of Texas, I dearly miss my Atlantic coast, yet I am grateful for the bounty of the Gulf of Mexico.  Every time I visit Galveston, I pack my personal supply of Old Bay and hit the wharves in search of this culinary treasure.  It's almost like being home again....
