Luck was with us because when we reached the beach the tide was out leaving long stretches of sand and seaweed covered rocks. The first thing we noticed was the number of Razor shells.

I was very pleased to find this little chap under a stone in one of the pools. He was put straight back after this short photo shoot.
A little further along the beach we came across this jellyfish in another pool. There were also several shrimps - but they are quite hard to take pictures of.

Ripples in the sand and barnacle covered rocks.
Many, many shells and several different varieties nestling amongst the flints. And a Herring Gull stands at the edge of a pool.

Bits of driftwood, seaglass and shells make up my Treasure for the evening.
Lots of different shells and seaweeds together with plenty of life in the rockpools can only mean a clean healthy coast. And eight Thanet beaches received BLUE FLAG status this year.
