And Madison found a muscle.
There are a couple young ones out there but they blend really well into the expanse of oysters.
After stopping and watching these amazing birds for a while we piled back in the car and set off on way home again. But just down the road we came to another wide spot in the road where there happens to be more beach (Seabeck Marina for those of you who know) so we stopped again. This time the kids got to go out rock flipping. And where there are rocks to be flipped there are crabs and shells to be found!
Tyler found a dead crab.
I love how I can tell my kids apart just by looking at their hands! It amazes me! The differences in subtle things like their hands and the the way they hold them.
I found an eel! Tyler carried it back to the water with me. Ben thinks stuff like that is gross, I think he's weird, but I love him!So we had a lot of fun exploring the shore if only for fifteen minutes or so. Ben went over to an old cement culvert and there was quite a bit of sea life there for the kids to check out. There were starfish and crabs galore!
It was a great day the kids even had fun hamming it up for the camera!
