Yesterday R took Matthew and Joshua to a little mangrove/wildlife area near where we live to see the little crabs that live there. The boys togged up in their gumboots, with a bucket and spade, and waded through the mud to look for crabs.
There weren’t many crabs but the boys did see a few, as well as some of the mangrove shrubbery. They had great fun in the mud though and as it’s situated near the harbour, they got to see plenty ships coming in and out. They returned home to me with wide-eyed excitement and stories to tell. 🙂
