OUTSIDE THE BOX:
Next Tuesday, May 29, is likely to be the best day (or night, actually) to witness the annual spawning of the horseshoe crabs in Delaware Bay. For millions of years, horseshoe crabs have been returning to shores along Delaware Bay to spawn en masse at high tide the night of the full moon in late May or early June, which this year is May 29. To read more about the spawning, see, for example, www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/travel/millions-of-horseshoe-crabs-spawn-on-the-shores-of-delaware-bay-each-year-heres-how-to-see-them/2018/04/26/496a8efa-3daf-11e8-974f-aacd97698cef_story.html
