The view from my office windows this morning

Yes, that is a giant crab. It is on the roof of the building where Jake’s Famous Crawfish is located. Jake’s is one of the oldest restaurants in Portland. For whatever reason they put this crab up around St. Patrick’s Day and it stays for there for a few weeks. I am not sure what the connection to St. Patrick’s Day is.

Here’s a better photo that I found on Google Images.
