Low Tide Crabbing

The other morning when I arrived at Cockle Cove…


I could tell there wasn’t going to be much swimming happening with the tide so low.


But that sure didn’t stop these gulls from their longstanding fight over crabs.

In fact the shallow water made it even easier to keep a hold of the wriggling crabs.


I guess gulls WILL be gulls.  😉
