Just Five Minutes …

Just five minutes out of our door, the beach at the bottom of the hill awaits. On a hot, sunny day we don’t stay long, but we still can’t resist the call of a low tide. So many tide pools to explore, rocks to lift up and bigger rocks to climb on, so many sights to see.

Chika and Mr. Kate, heading to the water.

A hermit crab scurrying back to its tide pool below the rock I put it on.

  1. Looks like a really lovely way to spend some family time on a hot weekend. Our three children used to love nothing more than playing in rock pools when they were small. Ros

  2. Ah, this looks like the perfect way to spend a hot summer’s day! Say hi to the sea for me ;-)

  3. Wonderful. I know you know how lucky you are…

  4. wonderful pictures!
    it is quite possible that you live at the most beautiful place on earth!!

  5. I didn’t realize that the beach was SO close to you…I knew it was close but wow. Is it wrong that I’m seriously jealous right now?
