A windy beach, dolphins and story stone play
Monday, 02 August 2010
We enjoyed some windy winter beach time this morning at today's Playdate for the Planet. A few brave mums and littlies ventured out into the wind, and we were rewarded with kite flying, seashells, sunshine, and dolphins.
I love the beach in winter.

...plastic! I was surprised by how many times I picked up what I thought was a bright shell, only to find that it was plastic. I wonder how long this coral-covered piece had been floating around the ocean? I wonder how much plastic will litter our beaches when Little Eco is my age? Sadly, this plastic is not only killing sea-life, but is also ending up in our seafood.
Inspired by these Empowerment Pebbles and Story Stones, this afternoon we made our own story stones....
We simply drew on the rocks with a paint pen. Little Eco had lots of fun playing with the stones, shells and driftwood. She even had the sun and moon playing see-saw with each other?
