Not all the thrill of kayaking comes from the paddling. Some comes from the shore features slowly passing by, some from the sea life which rises from the depths and some comes when from stopping on a beach to eat a lunch or setup camp for the night. I'm a beach-comber at heart and can bearly hold myself back from strolling along a beach to see what's washed ashore.
The crab shell in the picture came ashore - or got itself dropped onshore - on a small island near Taylor's Head, Nova Scotia. Not the most amazing find I've ever made on a beach, but one that proves every find can be a delight however tiny, even a crabby one!
