Oh I Do Like to See Beside the Seaside

I do love to stare into the pools,
Though the creatures that live beside the seaside
When looking up at us must think us fools!
Oh, it’s luverly wand’ring at the seaside
And especially at a low spring tide,
And to know that for getting to the seaside
Is no more than a five-minute ride!



N.B. All living specimens were returned unharmed to their pools at the end of the expedition.

  6. Sadly we don’t seem to have anything in our rock pools when the tide goes out, but Hubby did find a small jelly fish which we put back in the sea.
