The wonderful thing about the beach is that it is never the same twice – or even once – and for Algy it is a constantly renewed source of fascination. This time the tide was very low, and it was even possible to walk out to the wee islands if you didn’t stay too long… But Algy was more interested in the shells and the many different coloured seaweeds that had gathered in the strange ruts which the receding tide had channelled in the sand.

Algy would like to dedicate this post especially to Eva and her beautiful feathered friend Lukulla, and to thliii and LuxLit, with many, many thanks for all their kindness and continued interest in his adventures.
