a snap shot in time

As I walked with all of the other 5/6’s along the bumpy and rough rocks I saw a crab in between two rocks, as I bent down to pick it up I was overwhelmed by the stench of the sea salt, I picked it up and I saw its hard bumpy shell, as I put it down I felt its two nippers pinch my skin, it tickled. After it finally let go it ran of, I heard the trickle of water coming down the rocks, as I took a deep breath in I tasted the salty sea water of the big blue sea.
