Fading B.V.I Soldier

Personal memory by Kem Lake

1999Tortola, British Virgin Islands

As a young boy living in the B.V.I, there used to be so many soldier crabs around my house at a particular time of the year. They would come in abundance, so much that you had to move them out of the way to walk. People would come by and pick them up by the bucket load to use as bait when fishing. After the years passed and modern technology grew there were less and less, you are now fortunate to see 3 of them at this time of year.
