Lil Blue doesn't like crabs...

We have been spending a lot of time on the beach lately. We have noticed that LilBlue does not like the crabs, any of them, she has even taken to wearing shoes on our walks so the crabs cant get her. This totally cracks me up!

This is before we saw any crabs on our walk last night!

The BIG crab

The little crab!

She likes none of them!

On our walks in the evening we have taken to picking up trash, which there is way to much of. I guess I am amazed and disgusted at the beachgoers who just do not pick up their own trash after they enjoy the beach. It is sad to see all the left behind beach toys, water bottles, beer and soda cans and numerous other items that do not belong on the beach after you have departed.

In addition to being trash picker uppers, we have been hole filler inners. See it is sea turtle nesting season here and when beachgoers did big holes in the sand (which is fine) they just need to fill them in so the turtles won't get caught in them when they come in to nest at night. We have also been knocking down some of the really big sand castles (which again are fine) but they can be a hazard to the nesting turtles. There are signs everywhere requesting beachgoers be mindful of these things but I guess beachgoers have too much sunscreen seeping into their brain and therefore cannot read said signs.

Two more reasons I love you all!

I probably wouldn't care for those crabs much either. But "Smiley" aka Big crab looked pretty friendly.

I love the beach but I could do without the crabs.
