Crabbing with Opehlia

OPHELIA lets go crabbing!!
That is the beginning of a great journey in the Long island bush.
A wild world unknown to me. A world into which Ophelia is about to take me.
This is her world. The comfortable way she moves through the bush, tells me she is at home. She has done this for a long time.
