Crab live release

My wife and I decided to go to Pillar Point Harbor on Black Friday this year to buy some live Dungeness Crabs so we could release them back into the ocean. We bought 9 crabs and put them in 2 five gallon buckets (you can fit about 5 crabs in a bucket). The fisherman said that they can live out of the water for about an hour. Then we drove them to a calm beach on the opposite side of the harbor so we could release them back into the sea. We recited the mantra Om Mani Padme Hung and blew on the crabs as we were setting them free. At the end we said prayers to transfer the virtue of this deed to all sentient being. After we were done we were very happy that we helped to prolong their lives and we went for a walk along the beach and watched the sunset. It was a very nice feeling.
