Changi Beach Surprise

I'm back at Changi beach after my last visit few month months ago. This time round, I have a few friends with me to explore this wonderful beach over the eastern part of Singapore. Peiya also join us here with her friend.

We saw lots of tiny crabs include several type of swimming crab and moon crabs.
