Trip to the beach!

Today we visited Ballyloughane Beach with Dr. Noirin Burke from the aquarium.We went exploring in rock pools with nets - we found crabs,mussels,shrimps,periwinkles and cockles.Noirin told us about the islands we could see - Mutton Island with the lighthouse,Hare Island and Rabbit Island.We learned that the black sand underneath the surface is not dirty - it is black because it doesn't get much oxygen.

It was a great day!
