Two Sisters and a Fiddler Crab

We live very near the beach where we spend many 
treasured moments...




Two sisters, low tide and a whole bunch of Fiddler Crabs...

 They live in these little holes...




 If you're really quiet you can see them...




They are really quick!

When they dig a hole they bring up these little balls of sand... 




It takes a lot of patience but if you wait really quietly,
and you're really fast...


You just might catch one!




 Of course they put him right back...




and looked some more...




It was time to leave the Fiddler Crabs to their business...
 and head for home as the sun was going down...


A beautiful time to be at the beach with my girls...




 This is what we do for fun in my neck of the woods!

  3. We have little sand crabs, like those, on Southern California Beaches too and we'd do the same as your daughter (catch and release). Does the waterway go to a marina or something like that?

  4. Found you from your firepit tutorial on Pinterest - what great memories you and your family must be creating living by the beach. I daydream about that one day ;-)
