You achieved your desired effect! Not sure what a Limpit is/ does. Can we eat them? They look like a big barnacle. Good shot.

Hi Robert,
Only the other day a Chap on tv was was showing what you can harvest from the beach. These were amongst his catch. He cooked um up first. He reckoned with the recession we should all get down to the beach, theres lots of food under the sand. I,m going to get some more pics down there before it's full of people with spades digging the place over. I can just see McLimpits & Flies opening up all along the coast.
Cheers Mateyy.

Hi Frank,
Lol, you have a great sense of humor and imagination.
They are Elf hats, when the Elfs see you they pull the hats down tight on the rocks and they only come out when your not looking. The cone shape channels there voices into the ground so they can ear each other but predators cannot hear them. I usually spend an hour or so with a stethoscope on the rocks listening to there conversations, It's very interesting. Yesterday they were talking about tide times, Amoco cadiz, Tony Hayward, and Alien invaders digging up the beach. It's a real eye opener.
