“Adventures of an IMP” Part VII:In which pigs roast and crabs snap (sort of)

Looking across from “The Harbour” you could see a very long mudflat that stayed above the level of high tide, and to the eye it seemed very straight. When Able Seaman saw this she said, “I think that we should call that mudflat “The Spit”, because it looks just like a spit waiting for a pig (or more fitting to our situation, a wild boar) to be roasted on it…so what do you think?”
No one objected to this, so “The Spit” was named. On “The Spit” lived HEAPS of little crabs. It was fun to poke twigs down holes and then pull them out with a crab hanging on the end. After searching for crabs (which was not that hard to do) we cast our rods, which IMP‘s crew had made, off “The Spit”, managing to catch five snapper about 75 cm in length! We filleted the snapper. Then skewering them on a stick, we cooked them over a fire. Delicious!
