Celumir the Bald, Durgar Ironfoot, Pavel the Great and Father Nicholas are back from the Caves before most of the jackanapes staying at the abbey guest house bother to stumble out of bed. If it weren't for Father Nick's acid burns and the slashing claw marks covering Durgar, the only clue that they had ventured out would be the crab stew they're cooking up over the guest house fire pit. Scuttling crabs are fairly common along the beach leading up the the Caves. Anglo-Normans view crab as a lowly peasant fare, but these four adventurers seem pretty happy just to be alive at breakfast time.
