Flamingoes by he bumpy Lady's Mile road. A well needed promenade with lovely people we've met recently. The morning also involved kite flying, an attempt to fish, and shell picking.
In the last pic is a small version of the Pen Shell, a fragile, long and triangular shaped shell. It normally lives in the sediment with the pointed end anchored using a "byssus" fibre. In the Mediterranean area the long silky bussys fibre has since ancient times been used to produce "sea silk". Fishermen also in Cyprus used to be eager to find them for the silk-like
fibre, which after combing and drying in the sun could be used to
produce various items. Sea silk was considered an extremely fine, rare and valuable fabric, and for centuries it's been used in manufacturing of gloves, shawls, stockings and cloaks.
