While walking on the beach in front of our hotel one morning we found a little green shovel. On the way back it was still sitting in the sand by itself so we let Daughter pick it up for use.
What could a teenager possibly need a toy shovel for? Digging out crabs of course!
The night before was very cool, we had on jeans and sweatshirts on the beach. So the little crabs were not running around at night. Husband and Daughter found the holes and wanted to see how deep the crabs would dig. Turns out the answer is they will dig pretty deep!
And the crabs were none too happy about having their afternoon disrupted!
