Last Christmas, we went to Nebraska. This year, Nebraska came to us. Jim and Mary Kay arrived on Lopez from Omaha this week, and Christmas Eve has been a nice tour de Lopez for them so far. Center Church for Christmas Mass, Lopez Coffee Shop for holiday cheer, Jones Family Shellfish Farm for oysters and clams. Horse Drawn Farm for greens. And our Mud Bay back yard for Dungeness crab.
This was Jim’s first crabbing experience. We’re hopeful for a few keepers on Christmas day.
We spent the afternoon playing Monopoly while the fire burned, the clams steamed and the crab chilled. Family, fun and food – we could not ask for a better Christmas. Go Big Red, Lopez style.
