Sugarloaf Drive is really quite lovely. I like the non native palms lining the road. Rusty likes it because it leads to a couple of interesting walks.
He has not lately been interested in visiting the Jumping Bridge or the Loop but I may try him again after schools open and the place goes quiet again.
He likes sniffing the edges of the roadway and sticking his head in bushes, as odd as that sounds. I saw a few crabs scuttling around.
Indeed when I followed Rusty up the road I heard massive rustling sounds all around me which would have been creepy had I not known what the noise was.
They aren't very big but they are extremely skittish are land crabs.
That was a challenge I tried to come to grips with: madly scuttling crabs.
You will see these little brown dots scuttling across the road this time of year. Sometimes the bigger ones defiantly wave their claw in the air before getting squashed. These guys are too small to try acts of defiance.
