More than one question came to me about sea beans. Here on this website is the best info than has come my way. http://www.seabean.com/what.asp
More pictures of the latest bean might help you in identification of it. My effort on identification has not started yet.
The fog went away while my lunch was being eaten. Therefore all plans were laid aside to go beachcombing. On the way down to MISP the temperature rose to a great temperature.
A short attempt was made at driving on the beach but that diesel weight seemed to want to head for China so it was back to the day use parking lot. After gearing up a stop was made at a post to let it take my picture.
From there the Beachcombing Team headed for the foot entrance to the dunes and beach.
About three miles were covered in the nearly four hours of beachcombing. A couple of neat wind sculptures were recorded. The first one was about four inches high and is now named Curly Tip. It was extremely delicate looking.
Did you know that sand monsters live under the sand at the beach? Yep they sure do and are very hard to catch. You don’t believe me! Well here is a picture of one sticking its three inch long tongue out at me.
At another spot a large sand crab was spotted. A very careful approach was made in the effort of getting a picture. It turns out the crab was fresh dead so the picture was easy to get.
My seed pod search was very successful. This is a new style of seed to me. When it was first seen, it looked like a sand covered golf ball. It is washed up some in this next picture but will need more cleaning tomorrow.
The temperature was dropping faster than the sun was going down so it was time to leave. Here is a picture of the OFM starting up a dune to go back to the Truck, courtesy of a handy broken post and the Canon self timer.
Today that unbelievably handsome fellow worked very hard at trying to have tooooo much fun. TheOFM
