Conch and octopus

This is the conch shell that had the octopus on it. The octopus
was about 4 feet across and the body was 2 feet across.
When we were going conch hunting with friends I (Conrad) saw a conch with a big octopus trying to suck the conch out from its shell. We got the octopus off but we weren't sure it hadn't eaten the conch. The octopus was very angry and turned white. But after we got the shell, I looked deep inside and saw that the conch was still in there.

I also saw a little conch fish come out of a conch shell.

I'm Mark. I held a conch. It's called a queen helmet conch. We threw it back because we don't think you can eat them. Bye bye!

Here is some art that Mark and Conrad made for Mom's birthday.

Elbow Cay and Hope Town

Digging on the sand bar
Hidden tree house just off the beach
Biking to Hope Town.  The ice cream was the best
part. Junkanoo is very colorful ice-cream. It's our
favorite flavor now.

Building with sand

Mark and Conrad have been doing a lot of building and digging with sand. The sand is very hard to get off your skin.

Another aquarium!

Big crab inside!

Hi its Conrad! I made another  aquarium! There is one starfish there was a sea urchin but its not in the picture. I found a big hermit crab. They're called soldier crabs in the Bahamas. It was fun. There were  horse flies there. Their  bite hurts.  In a hour it was time to go.

New aquarium

We're back in the Bahamas and the other day we found more creatures for our temporary aquariums.

 We also used the box for the new charger to make a house for our sock monkeys.
