With the warmer weather and longer days, the girls have been walking beyond the outer yard to check on things, such as the old gravel pit and pond areas.
Sometimes, they bring things back.
I believe these were found somewhere towards the old gravel pit.
Dem bones look like they’ve been cut!
Today was one of those days when I was able to visit the beach after dropping my daughter off at work.
This time, twice!
I got these shots this morning.
I was able to swing by the beach after dropping my daughter off at work.
What a glorious morning!
I love these marks the waves left behind, as the tide receded.
Those squiggly whiter lines are tiny ridges of sand, left behind by waves.
The rocky part of the beach is always so much more interesting than the sandy parts!
You never know what you might find, too.
Unfortunately all the pictures I took focused on my dash in the background, instead of this amazing rib bone I found. The size of the fish this belonged to must have been impressive!
Yes, I kept it – for my other daughter’s collection.
My daughter had a short shift today, so I just stayed in town until she was done. At times like this, weather willing, I like to check out the beach (and play some Pokemon Go… 😉 ).
On a beautiful day like today, lots of people were at the marina, getting their boats out for the summer, while others were already out on the water.
If you click on the first picture, you should be able to see the row of sails at the horizon. 😀
Near the main dock, you could really see where the tide was working away at the beach stones. I like looking in this area for interesting things.
This one is much bigger than the last one I found.
When I showed a picture of that one to my older daughter, the first thing she asked was, “did you keep it?”
I hadn’t, and she was quite disappointed, so this time I brought it home.
She was thrilled! 😀
Further down the beach, I found a pile of rocks someone had made. One of them reminded me of a nose.
So I did this with them.
I hope it brings a smile to someone’s day. 😀
I was able to stop at the beach again, after dropping my daughter off.
One of these days, we should there and actually swim or something. 😀
When I’m just there for a quick visit, I like to walk away from the sandy part of the beach and head for the rocky part.
I like to keep a look out for unusual colours, shapes, fossils and fairy stones.
It’s mostly sand and lime stone. I like ones like this, with the interesting colours and textures. Sandstone is remarkably light.
It’s common to find pieces of shell as well, but today, I found what looked like teeth.
Which turned out to be exactly what it was! On the jawbone of a fish.
No. I didn’t keep it.
It’s a really nice and relaxing way to spend a bit of time in the morning. Especially when it’s early enough that there’s hardly anyone else out, yet! 😀
