  1. What a special outing.
    I love the quiet, unspoiled coastal environment. Unfortunately, it is so commercialized here now that, in most cases, there is more rubbish than marine fringe life. But the NQH girls need to go somewhere where they can see rock pools, boulders and the seaweed we eat actually growing.
    Thank you for sharing your trip and reminding me of the importance of getting the girls out and about again! Winter can turn me into something of a hermit.

  2. My first thought was, “it must have been a warm day” as the Hittys looked so comfortable just in their pretty dresses. Wow, what wonders they found! It’s so cool to see what your area of the world yields in your walks. Thank you once again.

  3. What a welcomed story this is. Every single photo is appreciated. The beautiful texture in the wood, the sea glass, the sun on Arianell and her wonderful dress transports me there.
    I’ve never seen or knew about Chiton. Up close it resembles Trilobite fossils to me. So interesting. Thank you.

    • It is so nice that you could come with us on our expedition today…we love visiting our closest beach – some days I wonder why we don’t go more often, but it is much less alluring at high tide, and in the pelting rain!

  4. Such wonderful creatures and things reside in the sea and hittys got a chance to see some of these wonders at low tide. As always, thanks for sharing

  5. how interesting it must be to live near an ocean! Enjoyed the discovery of little creatures and thinking about how the tides take and give ever day. Fascinating!
