The slope of the beach is changing now that fall's been tip toeing in. It's a little steeper and the water is getting cooler.
Yesterday I picked this Knobbed Whelk out of the swash zone. I almost got knocked down but I didn't want the waves to wash it away from me so I had to get a little deeper to get to it. I don't like to go in the water here unless I'm dying from the heat because there are no lifeguards to come after me if I get pulled in from a riptide. Even in knee-deep water this is possible so I keep my distance.
I like that it's not shiny and store-bought looking. It actually looks like it spent some time in the sea and is now old and worn.
Put your ear close, can you hear the ocean? :O) This will make a good subject for some drawings I have in mind.
I also found this tiny purple urchin. It's broken on top but I like the patterns. I have 3 more at home that I'm thinking about making a Christmas ornament with.
That shark tooth is from a Lemon shark I think. The one on top, I'm not sure about.
I sing in the shower. I don't participate in popularity contests. I have a freakish ability to remember mundane factoids. I can pick up and carry my 6'2" husband on my back. That's all I can think of to share for now.
Ok OK I know in this picture those sunglasses make me look like a bug. They're not that big, I swear.
