cuttlefish shells

This pile of cuttlefish shells  was at the western end of Dep's Beach on the southern Fleurieu Peninsula.  I stumbled upon them whilst I was on a late afternoon  poodlewalk with Kayla and Maleko. I presume the shells  had been collected and piled up  by kids during the recent school holidays.

I came across  the shells  around the time of this excursion to Granite Island. The shells  were packed up between  the rocks in deep shade.    

on Dep's beach

Dep's Beach is one of the spaces Kayla and I walk to on our early morning walks. It's  a small beach that lies between Petrel Cove and Kings Beach, more or less  on the border between Victor Harbor and Waitpinga:

Most people walk across it as they walk along the heritage trail. Surfers--mostly young lads--- are its  most frequent visitors. They surf at the western end of the beach,  which is where the above photos was taken  during the recent very changeable weather.
