It’s mine and I ain’t sharing ….

With the tide very low on a windy Rissers today, I observed a seagull doing its thing with a clam or to be more accurate an Atlantic Surf Clam. To get to the goodies inside, I watched as the seagull took flight a couple of times with the clam firmly fixed in his beak. He would then drop it from a height of about 25/30 feet to break it open on the hard wet sand.

With the spoils now available, there was no way he was going to share his lunch with anyone.

Just a short distance from this activity was what I thought, a very attractive piece of seaweed ….

Blue Rocks on Ice ...

On this lovely bright but cool day, it was perfect for a drive to Blue Rocks, where one of the little bays was crammed tightly with ice.

Afterwards it was onto the Knot Pub in Lunenburg for Fish & Chips.

My favourite season for beach wanders

With the vernal equinox now only a couple of weeks away, it means from an official point of view, the end my favourite season for beach wanders.

For me winter beach wanders are so pleasant, the air is always crisp and fresh, the sea tends to be much wilder and more wonderful, and then most times, I am the only one out there enjoying it all ~ just like this morning on Rissers during high tide.
