We knew Sunday, March 6th was going to be a hot and humid day. A good one perhaps for the beach or an air-conditioned pub/restaurant/living room.

A rare opportunity was had this week with an extra low tide to capture the small grasses. Sea Grass beds play an important role in providing a habitat and nursery for numerous vertebrates and invertebrate species, some of which have yet to be named. The grass beds are an essential part of the whole ecosystem of the bay, for fish, dolphins, turtles, crabs, shell fish and birds.
