We went to Oyster Beach for the day - with a car load of oyster lovers - sailor slept on the way (late night) getting energy for the big run around, swim and play for the day. Was a great day - the tide was super low so we were able to walk right around the back of the rocks and swim in the rock pools underneath the hollows in the rocks. . . (prepare yourselves for a ton of photos ....)

in the waves
a storm blew in around midday but we escaped with only a few rain drops and the sound of thunder
round the rocks to the oyster hunters
the ladies sit at the rocks and collect oysters for hours - filling up containers of them to take home
the strangest thing is that I G G Y who will only eat meat, bread and cheese ( i have never seen a vegetable pass by his lips) just L O V E S rock oysters - i can knock them off the rock for him and he'll sit and happily eat em up ... charles loves em too ... although i think in this photo he is drinking saltwater ... it was a cup fill of oysters at one time ...
swimming through the rockpools under the rock arches - tres cool
charles spotted a M A S S I V E crab hiding up under the rocks and so kade, man that he is, set about trying to capture and kill
trying to stab it with a stick that kept breaking ... everyone was squealing and jumping around
until Watjumi wandered oh-so-casually over and knocked off its claws with a hammer ...
doesn't look so scary without its claws ...
but still so Y U M
waiting for someone to drive by and rescue us
