Children have been exploring the mysterious world of Exmouth’s seafront rockpools.

Youngsters spent one of the last days before their return to school being taught what to look out for and where to look.

Officers from East Devon District Council’s countryside team were on hand to offer the children advise and to help them identify the different wildlife which calls the sea their home.

Some youngsters were given buckets and nets to borrow for the discovery adventure while others brought their own.

The event was held as one of the council’s summer events to keep children active while they are on their summer break from school.

There will be a Tai Chi on The Maer event on Saturday, September 15.
