This happened a few years ago. I was with my family on a vacation to Ocracoke,North Carolina,This is an island. This island was more remote,compared to the other islands at least.We went there right after a small hurricane hit the outer banks which included the island.It was dark and gloomy looking,and partialy raining on and off here and there,but we took a ferry to the island.The trip on the ferry was extraordinary because I have never done any thing like it before.But eventually after we arrived and looked at the small town, Then went out for lunch we decided to go to Ocracoke National Campground. After this experience i never want to go to the ocean at night.
Later,when we got our camp setup,we went for a swim but we were not allowed to go far because the waves were heavily affected by the hurricane that occurred a few days ago,And were huge and rough.Later after we got bored of the ocean and searched for seashells. But,we saw a crab and my 6 year old brother and I,went after it, like normal wild boys. When we caught that sucker the crab was bright white with bright yellow on it’s legs. We wondered what species it was so we went ahead and asked the ranger at the front of the campground. He told us it was a ghost crab and he said they mainly come out at night.
