Beach Biology

Today we went to Fisherman's Beach with other homeschoolers. Beach Biology is something we enjoyed with a group of homeschoolers in Adelaide - visiting the same beach each month and walking,playing, observing. We use field guides and may sketch or take photos.

It is fascinating to really see the changes at the beach over the seasons. And the social aspect is also enjoyable.

I am so glad to be a part of this beginning Beach Biology group. It was a glorious day at the beach, walking, observing and sharing lunch after.We found chocolate shale, ironstone, bubble weed and many other specimens - all of which must remain at the reef.

We learned a bit about the history of the reef - there was even copper mining there in the 1880s.

I guess its a 40 minute drive on the M2 ( motorway or freeway) but well worth the drive and the tolls!
