Both sightings left me wanting more, so now before we go for a swim in the ocean, I always take time to scan the water first in the hopes of spotting yet another unexpected creature.
The other day, however, I didn't have to look long. In fact, I didn't have to use my eyes at all. My ears told me something different was in the water.

Yup, it was a guy playing a banjo. In the water. With waves (albeit small ones) crashing all around.
One reason I love going to the ocean is because I never know what I'll see or find. There are always feathers, shells and forgotten toys to pick up and examine.
|One day's cache|
There are new birds to learn about, jellyfish to avoid and crabs to watch disappearing into holes.

One time we even came across a washed up, abandoned catamaran sailboat.
