Fun at Blomidon
The waterfalls are always a favorite place to play, there are 4 or 5 of them. We visit the three easterly ones every time we go.
We found a mermaid's purse! Its an egg case for a shark or a ray!
Sprout ate periwinkles and rocks when no one was fast enough grabbing them away from him. It is agreed that when we have to return to a hunter gatherer life that he has a leg up on all of us!
Then we did some hunting and gathered delicious blackberries. They've just started up here at Blomidon, almost all of them are still green. We'll be picking into October! Rock Hound has a gift with rock finding and found this awesome rock bowl. Everyone used it to drink from the waterfall too.
