Ahoy there crab fans! My name’s Colin and I’m a crab. Lol! Pretty obvious really as I’m orange, Ive got claws and I look like a crab. Unless I was a crab-shaped carrot but that would be silly. A talking carrot?
Most of the time I can be found chilling in my rock pool or having a bit of fun with my mates. I do like to travel though and in summer I crawl about 300 yards to spend the holidays with my cousins who live in the harbour - it’s great as we spend most of the time playing the crabbing game - I do love a bit of bacon, you know.
The Gone Crabbing team really love me - don’t tell them, but they spoil me rotten so I don’t mind appearing on a few of their products - after all, they do seem to love the beach just as much as I do.
I’d better be off now - catch you later. You can find out more about me in my memoir - Colin The Crab - out now at all good Gone Crabbing stores.
Hello everyone - I’m Sally #waves. I’ve been mates with Colin for such a long time, I’ve forgotten when I actually met him. It took nearly a day to shake hands.
I think my Mum knew his Mum although she found her a bit snappy. Anyway we share the same rock pool and it’s just so lovely there - especially in the summer when the water warms up and I can sunbathe on the rock. Its quite a busy place - we have lots of visitors - there’s Mike the Mussel, Shawn the Prawn and Neal the Seal who pops in at high tide. It would be nice if there were a few more girls though.
Anyway, everyone at Gone Crabbing is jolly sweet to me. I’ve been on a t-shirt or two, I don’t mind admitting, and my mug is on one of their mugs - all yellow and pink and girly. Would look rather nice on your kitchen table...
Watcha. I’m Mike, Mike the Mussel. I’m quite a cool guy, pretty tough and with a lot of mussel. Although under that tough exterior, I’m a bit of a softie. I’m trying to get Colin to act a bit cooler but he doesn’t like coming out of his shell. I hang around at the rock pools sometimes - the vibe is good there and it’s a great place to meet other people.
Shawn the Prawn is a good guy and Steve the Seagull drops by with the odd chip from time to time. Anyway got go… I’ve got a date. I think I’ve pulled a mussel.
Hey, they’ve given me a spot! I’m so happy! I’m Steve, the unpopular seagull. Everyone thinks I’m crafty and that I might peck them but I’m just curious and hungry. I like anything you’ve got spare - sandwiches, chips, ice cream, pasties.
Whatever you’ve got, I don’t mind. I’ll clear it up for you. Not so keen on salad though.
I met Colin down at the quay last year, we ended up having a few drinks together. He’s great - he likes bacon, I like bacon. In fact we both like to pig out on it. Lol.
I prefer mine cooked but I will eat it raw if you haven’t got time for a fry up. Umm... What’s that smell.. Gotta fly, something’s cooking...
