A GHOST CRAB’S DAY AT THE SEASIDE AT DELPHI, ABACO
Crabby the Crab lived amongst the greenery at the very back of the Delphi Club Beach
It was a very beautiful beach indeed. Lucky Crabby!
One day Crabby decided to go down to the sea for a swim
He scuttled across the sand towards the sound of the waves
He passed the burrow of his friend Sandy. Sandy was very busy tidying his house.
“Would you like to come for a paddle?” asked Crabby. “No thanks”, said Sandy, “I’m busy today”
So Crabby carried on towards the water’s edge. He got closer, to where the sand was wet…
…and closer, to where the water tickled his toes…
…and closer, to where the tide ripples reached. Crabby waved his claws with excitement
Finally, he was paddling in the warm water. It was just perfect. Whoops! Don’t fall in, Crabby!
Very soon Crabby was in the water, right up to his eyes. What a beautiful day for a swim!

Reblogged this on Beach Treasures and Treasure Beaches and commented:
It’s just another gorgeous day at the beach for these little guys!
Many thanks for the reblog, Jody. Seems a popular one, despite (because of?) the intentional cheesiness! RH
Loved it! I’m a big cheese fan!
I love ghost crabs! Merry Christmas RH and have a wonderful Abaco new year! 🙂
They are very cute, pity about the rather icky storyline! A very Merry Christmas to you and your bees too (from Dorset, not Abaco), with plenty of quality cake, and have a wonderful New Year. RH
Simply marvellous – such character!
Apologies for weaving such a cute set of pics into a little story. It just seemed right, somehow! RH
Love these guys! Fascinating post and creature. We’re going to be in the Caribbean for a month in January, St. Croix, Tortola and Puerto Rico…..I need to order a underwater camera!
Have a wonderful time – and I look forward to the posts and wonderful photos that will no doubt emerge from your trip! RH
