"Put 'em up!"

"Put 'em up!"

"Want to find some crabs?" Bethany asked me. 

"Sure!" I scrambled down after her as she gracefully picked her way down to the rock covered beach. She began to nudge stones. Little scuttling crabs began to pop into my vision, when before they had blended in with the shells and rocks on the ground. She picked one up and gave me a brief science lesson. I felt like a little kid again in an instant, my grin spread wide across my face. He slipped out of her grip and claws up began his sideways run away from us. 

Play is so difficult to plan into my adult world. It's sometimes hard to break off the path of my schedule to make time for beauty and discovery. Cheers to crab hunting and friends that pull you to the beach.
