Crabs at Cape Cod

We were lucky enough to get a nice hotel at Cape Cod at around the price of most campsites we've stayed at so that was a bonus. We got chatting to the Manager and his wife when we arrived and like people everywhere  interesting people. Last night we got a knock on our door and it was the Manager with 2 huge pieces of chocolate cake for us, it had been his sons birthday that day, a really nice touch.
We watched a documentary on migratory birds and their ability to learn how to feed themselves on their long journey, one feast some have is when horseshoe crabs once a year wash up on the beach to lay their eggs, the tide flips them over leaving them to die and their eggs for feed. Imagine our surprise when we got to the beach just along from the hotel and saw Horseshoe crabs, nature live as it happens!
Next blog update should be from New York City, stay tuned people!

Oh, let the sun beat down upon my face, stars fill my dreams
I am a traveler of both time and space, to be where I have been
To sit with elders of the gentle race, this world has seldom seen
They talk of days for which they sit and wait, all will be revealed
Kashmir, Led Zepplin
Shimmering
A Horshoe Crab that has met its demise (but not been eaten yet)
One the right way up, I'm assuming the eggs were proteted
Sand Sculptures everywhere here
Outside the "Irish" Pub
This daft bird thought it had caught food, realised, spat it out.......
....and tried again
Fiona lapping up the rays along with the sunflower
I had to try it, not bad but as always too much to finish
