SATURDAY CRITTERS - South Africa

One of the first things we did after we got settled into our accommodation, was head to the beach.  The sand was pure white and beautiful to walk on.  The birds I saw were the Hadeda Ibis, African Sacred Ibis and Swift Tern.  Then we found a baby seal with it's head removed probably due to a shark attack.
I am linking to SATURDAY CRITTERS.
