I went for a swim today. The sea is getting colder. There was a big storm last weekend and seaweed, twigs and branches have been coming in with the tide. A few days ago the sea was a terrible chocolate colour.
There was this weird thing in the shallow water. Was it a starfish? Seaweed? A rock with a starfish and seaweed on it?
There were yellow baubles on the top of the thing. Were these ... sting-ray eggs?
I gave up wondering ...
PS, one day later .... when I went swimming today there were hundreds and hundreds of lovely little starfish in the water. It was hard trying not to step on them. It looked like the night sky upside down.
