I've been sorting every chance I get. And now, back to the beach.
We took the ferry from Powell River to Comox in mid-afternoon. By the time we were in the vicinity of Campbell River, it was supper-time. We were tired, hot, and hungry. We stopped at the first motel we saw with a "Vacancy" sign. The Edgewater. It was a small building surrounded by trees, two stories, with only 8 units, one with an Office sign on the door. Nothing fancy; no decor whatsoever, gravel driveway, flower pots hanging low from the overhang, one of which gave Laurie's head a hearty clout. But the price was right; almost half what we had paid at the Stonewater on the Sunshine Coast. And the room was non-smoking and clean. It would do.
We didn't discover the beach until the next morning. And then we decided to stay put for the rest of the week.
Tomorrow; the rocks. But for tonight, here's a pair of hermit crabs.
Small hermit in a pretty whelk shell.
I like those knobbly legs and pincer.
Hermit crab # 2. Yes, he's in there.
Checking out the territory. Cautiously.
And he scuttled over to the edge and dropped out of sight.
