It’s time for Debbies Six Word Saturday
“Do come and join us in our Saturday six-word musings.
I’ll admit that many of us openly break the numeric rule and share far more words (all excellent of course!) so the key rule is to have a title of six words – and then create around that the post that you desire! Perhaps in bunches of 6 words if you’re feeling inspired.”
After lunch at a cafe at Shelley Beach, we decided to go to Boulder Beach to see if we could find some things we could create among the cobbles. Unfortunately we couldn’t find anything to create to add to our beach art. But what I did find was a nimble group scrambling about the rocks looking for shellfish for their dinner.
C’mon Dave, last time I was here there was some great oysters over this way.
I am sure there were some down there Dave.
It looks a bit slippery, so you be careful Stan.
Do you know what you are doing Stan? That looks dangerous.
Sure thing Dave. You keep an eye out for those waves and give me a yell if a big one heads towards the rocks. Hey, I think I got one.
Check out this beauty Dave.
So Stan, are you going to share?
No way Dave. You go and have a look, there’s plenty down near the waters edge.
The other day, a Willie Wagtail was quite chirpy in the garden. I wondered why he was making such a fuss. Here is what I encountered.
I wonder if the water is cold or too deep? Maybe I’ll just pop in and see.
Hmm….it’s not deep and the water is a bit chilly but I think it will be OK.
Boy…..this is invigorating. I love splashing about!
Don’t forget to wash everywhere. A quick dunk will be just the thing.
Wow that water is a fabulous. I am going to have another big splash about.
A bit of a quick flick to get dry.
It’s great to feel lovely and clean. How do I look?

Franks word prompt for the Tuesday Photo Challenge: Wonder
I wonder how they built it
I wonder about our Moon and the Universe
I wonder about their curiosity
I wonder at the marvels of nature
I wonder how they can fly in a strong wind
I wonder at the colours and shapes

A while ago, I posted about sand crab art
On the weekend I actually had a Sand Crab, just near where I sat under the shade of a Pandanus tree, removing sand from his burrow. As this was the beginnings of the creative process, I didn’t capture the finished artwork.
He was quite busy coming and going tossing little balls of sand. The individual photos didn’t really capture the event, so I found a website that I could create a GIF file of the event for you. This is the first GIF I have made.
