Sight seeing

It was low tide and when that happens, the sea smells. Really, it does! Add to that the high humidity and it becomes rather unbearable walking on the coastline.

Duck Dynasty

Though we go for an evening walk on the coast fairly regularly, this evening was a first in a very peculiar way. This is because we came across a bunch of ducks, taking a walk of their own! And the way they were waddling in a straight line – as if taking part in a…
