091026 Cleethorpes Worms




I have been doing things rather that photographing things this weekend, so I have had to have another dip back into the archives for today's image. I took this a couple of years ago at Cleethorpes on the east coast of England. The wet sands provide a home to thousands of worms who drill down into the sand leaving sand sculptures which conveniently tell fishermen looking for bait where to dig.

Very interesting and kind of creepy too. :)

You'd think evolution would have taught them to keep their heads down.

John, Evolution favours the worm who has learnt to built his little sand-castle above the hole of his neighbour.

Ah, Cleethorpes - went there as a kid. You sometimes have a long walk to get to the sea, I seem to remember.

As for your question about the spacing between paragraphs, mine just does one line automatically. But it looks to me like you have your normal type set on double spacing so then it would make double double between paragraphs I guess. Don't know how you change it though.

Oh my. I guess their numbers do not suffer from the fishermen who dig down and get them. Here we have nightcrawlers which are pencil size earthworms that come out at night and after a rain they are all over the sidewalks and driveways and streets. A perfect time to get a can of worms to fish with.

I didn't know that about the worms. That's my lesson for today. Thanks Alan.
