The South West had a weekend of storms
Back to our normal wet and windy October weather.
Except this morning it was a clear, calm morning, too good not to go for a walk along the beach.
It also gave us a chance to try out our new camera.
Freya gives a whole new meaning of burying your head in the sand.
There were more things to keep her occupied than digging this morning. The storm brought in various shell fish, all littered along the tide line.
Some still alive and hanging in there waiting for the tide to turn.
Some were lucky, some not.
The gulls ate a hearty breakfast.
In fact the shell fish seemed to be disappearing at an alarming rate.
Seems there is such a thing as a free lunch after all.
At least until the tide came back in.
Word of warning about shell fish, only pick up the unopened ones, if the seagulls have got there before you, it's best to leave well alone.
Mussels are best from October to March.
But why ask me, I'm not the Soggibottom cook.
You can see Freya over on CATFLAP CAVALIER gibbering about her toys.You can also see her in her first ever video appearance. How to pick up a stone with no hands.
Or how bemused am I ...................
