In the meantime - Here are a few of the things that I saw on the beach during my walks. Sadly, not all was beautiful. There was a lot of scattered liter in the seaweed building up on the shore - turtle nesting season, so no clearing of the beach during this time. I don't remember ever seeing so much before and I've lived in Florida all my life. The worst was a debris field of red solo cups from some not so environmentally responsible party goers the night before a couple of which seemed to still be on the beach at sunrise. Fortunately there was more than enough beauty to make up for it all.
|Old coral on the beach. The brown part is the skeleton of sorts of the coral (white part) that remains.|
|Amazingly different textures in the coral "rocks" that make up a border along the walk way. I could have done an entire post just on this alone! Hmm - I just may have to go back!|
|Beach sand spurs! So that's what they look like up close. My foot found one before I moved on as well.|
|So fun to watch the water bubble up as waves pass over the little holes on the shore where little shelled creatures live.|
|Sadly, liter was abundant as well.|
|A child's teddy bear shaped flip flop. Although I'm sure left inadvertently after a day at the beach, this site was a little disturbing.|
|There were a number of little fish washed up on the shore as well. This one was lying by a shell and blanketed by seaweed.|
