Children search for scuttling crabs
Shouts of pure delight.

      He was a fine looker all right. I think I had as much fun as the kids while taking the photos.

    Ahh….you got to the beach too. You captured it beautifully. We went yesterday and had fabulous day. Kids just love the freedom. So much to do, water, sand, rock pools – what more could you ask for.

      Next time we’re over we should do a beach trip! Kids, cameras and critters. Sounds like a good adventure. All the best, Melissa

      It must be extraordinary to get to live all year round on the Inis Mor. A truly magical childhood for your kids, I imagine.

        I always felt drawn to live on one of the islands off the coast of Maine. I had to laugh when someone said to me one time that I was in fact living that dream. It is definitely magical for me. I do all I can to impress that upon the children, but not so sure they will realize until they are older and have seen more of the world.

    I don’t know about where you are (were) but in NZ seaweeds are edible—and I love them (The Spouse though, leaves me to it). Great shots with (dare I say it?) depth …

      That’s the west coast of Ireland–where I grew up and now get to visit on trips home from the States to my parents. Yes, seaweed has been eaten in Ireland for many generations, and used as an important source of fertilizer.

      Sometimes the brevity of a haiku all that’s called for. Thanks for reading and commenting, Roger.

      Thanks you so much. Looking forward to reading more of your wonderful posts on Greek mythology. I can highly recommend them to anyone with an interest in that area.
