We had a big storm come through the area on Friday and then next morning I headed out to Fort Desoto. It was low tide and the beach was full of things we don’t see that often. Lots of live shells. We mostly see broken ones.
I think this crab took over this empty conch shell.
This starfish was missing a few limbs.
The beach was full of these. They were all empty though.
Horseshoe crabs were on the beach.
Another critter taking up residence in an empty shell.
The beach was full of the above. Some kind of sea plant? Looks like corn on the cob husks to me.
A beautiful cool morning at Fort Desoto Park.
