Beachcombing in Winter
Exploring the beach after a storm in winter is an interesting exercise. There was so much to observe, and the cooler temperatures did not keep the children from playing in the Southern Ocean.
The day we combed the beach was so beautiful and calm.
We were amazed at how the shells were embedded into a sand shelf.
Red, green and brown seaweed of all shapes were scattered along the beach in twisted clumps.
The beach was littered with fascinating finds which the children were excited to discover.
A garden of sponge skeletons lay amongst an ocean of shells.
Don’t let the cold keep you from adventuring on to the beach in winter. You never know what you may discover or memories you might make.
Do you beachcomb in winter? What interesting treasures did you discover?
