We've had some really bad storms recently so there was a lot of seaweed washed up along with shells, coral and sea sponges. Even found a small live Octopus which we put back into the sea.
I think this pastime is called Beach Combing and we got chatting to a local who was doing the same as us - we were discussing the things we had found over the years.
Had a good find in 2 near perfect huge shells and couldn't resist doing a very small happy dance LOL!! Found a few other nice shells and some pieces of coral too.
