BEACHCOMBER’S DIARY AND REALLY AWFUL RHYME COMBINED…


Sand, sea and pooches
 


Took pooches to beach today;
We all had a lot of fun;
They froliced and splahed away,
And then we went for a run.
  
But shells were quite hard to find
Until a rock-shell I spied,
The fates then were most unkind –
A crab peeked out from inside!
 
Temptation which came to me
Was keep the shell nonetheless –
But flung it back in the sea
To save the crab from distress.
 
A cowrie I then espied –
The first one today I’d seen –
Now, did Nature then decide
That I a good boy had been?
 
So I got a just reward?
I like to think it was so –
My action to thus applaud,
Because I had done that throw.
And later one more I found –
 A rock-shell came on the tide
(For what goes round does come round);
This one was unoccupied!

    Lovely, and I must thank you; I saw the title of your post and anticipated more boastful cowrie pictures, I’m grateful I was wrong.
