Children (& crabs) on Uroa Beach
Each morning there are hundreds of tracks across the sand.
Evidence of all wildlife that skitters past in the early hours.
And there are hundreds of crab holes.
Today being Friday, in a predominately Muslim part of the world, there were many children on the beach enjoying their day off. They were catching crabs.
A stone is tied to a piece of string that is then attached to a stick. The stone is dropped into a crab hole; the crab eventually becomes entangled in the string an is caught.
