I was in Cape Cod, Massachussetts, last week. Wading in the bay, I noticed many a critter at my feet. It fascinated me how busy an ecosystem it was down there. Snails clung to rocks. Hermit crabs bumped into each other. Crabs did the sideways thing. All the while, the horseshoe crabs were the most graceful, not in any rush to be anywhere. The lowtide revealed this seashell extravaganza.

My cartoon drawing is inspired by those little guys.

Ahh yes. Summer time is here. It’s that time of year when crowds descend on the beaches for fun in the sun.

Personally, I prefer swimming in lakes, where it is not as crowded and I won’t have to worry about being eaten by a shark. Though, the traffic around the beaches here are even scarier than sharks.
