Weekend in Devon

This weekend we went to Babbacombe in Devon to snorkel and run the British Sub Aqua Club's Beachsnapper course. 
Babbacombe beach is down a very steep, winding road but as we turned the corner near the bottom we were faced with a perfectly shaped cove, pebbly beach and water sparkling off the water. I couldn't wait to get started.
During the day we learnt how to hold the cameras, about composition, zooming in and out and taking photos under water.
The 5 children on the course then had a go at taking photos of landscapes, textures and scenes. My mum taught us to use shadows and reflections to make a good photo.
Here are a few photos that the 5 of us took, so not all the photos are by me.

Snorkelling and taking photos

Whilst out snorkelling we saw Crabs, Blennys and lots of different types of seaweed.
Here are a couple of my favourites 


Different textures of seaweed

On Sunday we visited Millpond, Stoke Gabriel, where they sometimes have wild Otters and Seals. 
It was competely different from the busy beach the day before.

 When we got there it was just turning high tide so we could not get to where the Otters and Seals are seen. 
Although we did see fish, swans, ducks, seagulls, shellduck and Little Egrets.
