Rockpooling at Shandwick Beach

Saturday 14th July, 2012 was a change for us – the sun shone.

Fitfully it must be said, but someone did spot a shadow.  And it was not cold, at least not too cold.

So, examining the pools at low tide produced a fine batch of beasties. Followed by a fine barbequed meal in the fresh air.

Quick jump to the species list.
