Love heart jewel in the sand by a crab


My wife and I took a long walk along the beach in the Arakwal National Park just south of Byron Bay. The beach spans close to 8km and I think our walk covered about 5 of them. Unlike the main Byron Beach were tourists flock in their hundreds the Arakwal was strangely empty, despite numerous adjoining caravan parks.

Somewhere along the water line I have spotted this little jewel. A sand crab created a love heart out of the sand balls as it was digging its hole. As if the shape of this creation was not enough a beach pebble adorned the shape creating an illusion of predetermined design. It was a charming find.
