A seahorse, I used to think they only lived in warm, tropical seas, but apparently they live here, amongst the seagrass beds in Salcombe harbour (when the tide is in, obviously, when the seagrass would be all floaty and a nice place to hang out if you were a seahorse.)
The other thing I couldn’t manage to capture on camera, were water spurts, from razor fish, shooting up in front of me, from the sand, some twelve inches or so high. They hide in the sand at low tide, all that was to be seen was the hole in the sand. Not very exciting is it…
I tried to find a video of such a thing, but I couldn’t see that either. I did manage to find a little more about them though.
However some folk have for more success at capturing natures more elusive moments. Watch and enjoy.
Oh and here is another animal that has been elusive, Spud the dog, enjoying the sea, wearing his smart harness, purchased to replace the one trashed in the sledging foray. It’s an all together beefier little number than the previous one; Spud thinks it makes him look like a proper working dog, even on holiday
