Last week I participated in the Darwin Harbour Clean Up Day, and headed out on the early ferry to Mandorah, a small community that is a short 15 minute ferry ride from the Darwin CBD, though by car it's closer to 2 hours! There is a pretty amazing assortment of shells on some of the more remote beaches around the Top End, so I tried to squeeze in a little shell collecting on the side too.

Unfortunately for me, these shells are also prime real estate for hermit crabs and almost every shell I picked up was already occupied. And for anyone that's never seen one, this is what a hermit crab party looks like.
