Easter by the sea Jason Nicholas April 29, 2014 My friends, Sally and Piero, invited me down to the family holiday house near Bateman's Bay for the Easter long weekend. Early morning fishing Pelicans waiting for a snack Graaaaaaaa! Stingray hovering about in the shallows Sea houses I saw a man pick this up and discard it against the rocks. I think he didn't want to take it because it has a couple holes in the shell. I still think it's beautiful.
