Over the Other Side

Directly across the harbour from us is a beautiful area called Broad Bay, where our friends Elwyn & Dave live with their 4 children.  A couple of days ago we had the most beautiful weather (otherwise it’s been rather shocking of late), so we headed over to spend the day visiting with them. All of the kids get on so very well – they spent an entire 6 hours together and there was not a single argument or fight. Elwyn and I decided it would be sage to take them down to the beach for a swim to start the day off, and they had the most marvellous time swimming, building sandcastles, and searching for sea inhabitants. Reuben and his friend Jago found a discarded rubber mat in the ocean covered in baby crayfish – at first we thought it was orange seaweed, it was such a dense covering of creatures. Is it wrong to think “yum” when you see a collection of 300 baby crayfish?

    They’re all too rare at the moment, rather unfortunate x

    It looks like wonderful weather. We had 19 inches of snow and a snow day so beach weather sounds nice right now.

    Oh, how I wish I could visit you right now. I do like the snow we have, and I like to ski, but my body yearns for that warm sun and lovely water. I’m happy to live vicariously through your blog photos!

    Perfect – I shall do the same with your beautiful wintery ones x

  6. What a fascinating find ~ they look like unusual little “jelly-fish” ~ Raspberry flavour maybe (smiling!)
