Well, a mini version anyway. Water at just the right height to give the illusion of a group of islands awaiting the last rays of the sun. For the seagulls, the rocks do provide an island viewpoint into the surrounding waters for clams and other possible dinner goodies. The undersides usually provide shelter for dozens of baby crabs as the tide recedes and they become vulnerable to the birds. And then you stroll along the water’s edge until some other interesting aspect catches your eye.
