Wordless Wednesday 1 February

My children got to experience cockle collecting for the first time during the holidays.  This is where I discovered that Andre is a catch, look and release type of child and McKenzie was real keen to see what they tasted like when quickly cooked on the barbeque.


You can see that there are even a few barnacles attached to these shellfish that are nothing more than 3 - 4 cm wide.  The rules state that you are not allowed to collect more than 150 in one go.  Incase you are interested there is a whole lot of effort for something that tastes sandy.  Yuck.

The fun is catching , we caught and released about 140 yabbies on the weekend. We moved them from one dam to another.
Though they do taste okay when cooked.

I'm not a fan either - bet the kids loved it though!

I bet they had fun catching them. We spent a long time on the beach last May catching pippies.

Great photo. I've never tried them myself, I imagine they're slimy and I don't do slimy! I am sure it was great for the kids, though!
