Ghost Crabbing Product

You should checkout the Illuminet at It is perfect as it allows kids to have the flashlight and net in one hand and a bucket in the other. I think they also use them at Jennette's Pier.

night walk

My son and a friend of his went 2 years ago, we were out several nights on the beach it is so peaceful. One night a bunch of us were looking up at some strange lights in the sky, for 5 minutes we had a red and green light pattern going on, then 20 minutes later looked like small burst of fire works now mind you nobody was shooting anything off. it was very strange, we assumed it was NASA doing some tests but we all agreed it was strange...
One night we even had 4 horses sleeping next to our tent, that was freaky only because I didn't want to meet up with one making a 3 am bathroom
I have so many pictures and memories and I can't wait to go back. We are trying to arrange our boy scout troop to go as a group....

Ghost Crab Hunting

We love ghost crab hunting too! I've never picked one up though. I'll leave that to you :) Taking flashlights out on the dark beach is a shocking experience the first time!
