WELCOME TO CHATEAU DU MER BEACH RESORT
If this is your first time in my site, welcome! Chateau Du Mer is a beach resort with a beach house and conference Hall. The beach house could now accommodate 10 guests, six in the main floor and four in the first floor( air conditioned room). In addition, you can now reserve your vacation dates ahead and pay the rental fees via PayPal. I hope to see you soon in Marinduque- Home of the Morions and Heart of the Philippines.

Our First Taste of Dungeness Crab This Year
My mouth is salivating now just thinking of the Dungeness Crabs I purchase from Safeway today. It cost me $6.99 per pound. Each of the four are at least 1.5 lbs. The season opened last week. When I opened my FaceBook today, I saw from a friend status of the availability of the crabs in Safeway. I immediately called our local Safety store if they have it. It was a resounding yes. In two minutes I was driving to the store. Last year the season was a bust due to the demonic levels of domoic acid in the waters of the Bay-a toxic substance.
Crab has been showing up on some Bay Area menus and in grocery stores since the season started in Oregon and Washington, and now supplies have been supplemented with freshly caught crab from Northern California, where the season started last November 15.
In case you are not familiar with the Dungeness Crab Season here in Northern California, here's an article that I wrote in 2014 describing the Crabbing season in Northern California. http://theintellectualmigrant.blogspot.com/2014/11/dungeness-crab-season-opens-today.html
