At one with Nature

I am not quite sure if I have said it already but I am LOVING the beach!!

Today I feel like David Attenborough, (the most famous English nature guy) or like some marine biologist. We decided to check the beach out at the end of the garden, definitely not a swimming beach but a little nature treasure trove.

The most wonderful thing are the seals, they sit themselves on the rocks and if you listen carefully you can hear them have the most fascinating conversations.

I can spend hours watching them and the pelicans that swoop down into the sea to pick up their lunch. We spent a long time looking at things in the rocks, crabs and slugs......

........And then we came across this little beauty, I don't think I have ever seen a starfish before - just magical.

The Oompa Loompas LOVED it, so much to see and explore. So much nature and natural wonders, such a joy to be able to share it with them.

My two little Chums were also loving the beach, you can just see Tigger at the bottom of this photo. He found a rather nice stick and settled amongst the rocks - little doggy heaven!!

I have heard that there are sharks out there, I keep looking but have yet to see a fin. I can't say that I really want to see one, they freak me out. So, I am a happy marine biologist as long as it doesn't involve sharks!!
