Yes! Underneath the rocks were little crabs! We'd turn one over and poor, newly homeless crabs would scuttle away, frightened by the fearsome, laughing giants. Can you spot the little crabs hiding in this picture? There are at least five of them.
We scooped a few up to take a closer look. Eeeps! He looks so crabby! The key to picking up crabs is to push down on the top of their shell (to hold them in place) and pinch them (don't crush them!) between your fore finger and thumb from behind their body. Then they can't pincher you.
I learned this from my dad when I was little.
After displacing many unhappy crab inhabitants, we headed to the woodsy trails.
My friend pointed out something unfamiliar and orange at the edge of the trail. What could it be?
Gasp! A toadstool! I have never seen a real, live toadstool so I was flattered to finally find one. I took pictures, but was careful not to touch it. Real toadstools are poisonous. Did you know that? Don't eat them like Super Mario.
Have a happy day!
