If you go down to the beach today....

you will have it completely to yourself!! I had a stroll down about 7.45 a.m. and the water was like a mill pond, nobody in sight... I collected shells, fed the fish and sat....
One set of footprints...
and the fish were happy to see me and my bag of bread!
and I solved the mystery of the little balls of sand and perfect holes... little crabs make them!! They are the weirdest thing to watch... if you stand very still for a loooong time then they all pop out of the holes with a ball of sand, deposit it and pop right back down again! I've been to the beach loads of times and wondered what created the balls of sand but never saw anything until today...
maybe its because I was wearing my new sandals and not my Crocs!! How cool are they? They are made of plastic so I can wade in the water and they cost £1.00 !!! LOL

I've debated taking the littlest down to the beach as we love it and haven't been as much as usual this year.

I very well might take her next week having read your blog!
