Hermit crabs - patterns in the sand.
The beach was covered in these amazing patterns, meticulously made by these industrious hermit crabs. They are made up of tiny little balls of sand Each one was different, such a massive effort for it only to be washed away with the next tide!
Pauline has been race riding her own horses in point to points for 15 years and is now training with Doug. Pauline has recently got her trainers permit. They are both passionate about National Hunt racing and achieving maximum potential from their horses in the best possible way. This is why ‘Equine Fitness’ is a very exciting new business for them.
In 2006 Doug eventually plucked up the courage (it only took 7 years!) to propose to Pauline whilst they were on holiday in the Maldives and they married in the Lake District in June 2007.
