Throwback Thursday: below the sea level

You’re wondering about the title of this post? 🙂 At low tide I’m standing on the ground of the sea in Brittany and pointing my camera upwards. On this rock (and similar to the other rocks around) you can see many, many common or  blue mussels. They are eatable. Therefore they are i.e. cooked in white wine.

Take care!

Travel Tuesday: come up to me

It’s always fun observing these small birds. They are walking up and down the beach. Most of the time they are in the surf zone searching for food between the stones, the washed up algae and other stuff. Often, it’s quite hard to see them properly because they are well camouflaged between all this stuff.

 

Take care!

Travel Tuesday: ruddy turnstone

The ruddy turnstone is a small wading bird. Here we have one in its winter habit or non-breeding plumage. They are running restless along the shore during the surf to find some food.

Take care!
