The tide was going out when we started our walk from the Oxwich Bay Hotel, where we'd indulged ourselves with the cooked breakfast we hadn't been able to cook at the campsite. At first the children wanted to stay relatively close to the sea wall. Eventually the prospect of finding more live crabs and clams lured them further out into the wind, and we went out to the water, which continued retreating rapidly.

Four pairs of feet in the sand. I'm guessing it's not difficult to work out which belong to whom.

The magic shell circle, with contributions from everyone. Most of the big limpets were from Humuhumu, and the still-attached clam shells from Keiki.
