Our visit to the beach on Saturday morning:
1) Empty - how this first picture of the kids in the sea makes the beach (or at least the water) seem - it was actually fairly busy even when we arrived.
2) Fish - I spotted a large gull drop suddenly into the water, it then seemed to struggle for a long time such that we thought it might be caught on something, but it was just struggling with the weight of a huge fish that it then landed and proceeded to peck at on-and-off for the rest of the time we were there.
3) Castle - the finished work.
4) Far - where the kids ended up towards the end of our visit - the water still wasn't getting any deeper even all the way out there (it was low tide).
