After a slow start to the day, it was a short trip out during the afternoon. This time, we returned to the first area visited last Friday.

It was so enjoyable just taking things slowly and enjoying the scenery.

At Grand Baie river entrance the tide was out and shells in pristine condition lay upon the sands,

whilst crabs sunned themselves in the hundreds. A hint of a shadow and they were off

as herons were on the prow

amongst the river plants

and those cheeky minors watched on.

Flowers bloomed

on fences, in gardens and cemeteries

where hives of wasps buzzed in nooks and crevices hidden upon the headstones.

Fishing boats rested upon their anchors in protected havens.
