A few days ago Jeff and I woke up bright and early and headed for the beach.
We again, went to the beach near the lighthouse, a favorite shelling spot of ours.
The sun was just starting to show itself.
Willets were already prancing around at the waters edge.
I was here to collect shells…
But, I found myself fascinated by the beach scenes…and all the amazing things on the sand..
It was a delightful morning.
Shell seekers out in the low tide..
Birds fly over head.
Sanderlings feed near the waters edge..
I notice the Pen shell being lit up by the rising sun.
So I go crazy taking photos of them..
Hope you like Pen shells :)
A Sea anemone..glowing in the morning light.
More …lighted Pen shells
They all catch the sun a bit differently
This mini light show went on a bit longer until the sun was higher in the sky.
There were areas with many of these white shells.
I haven't been able to ID these yet.
I came across this crab claw.
The colors were stunning!
Anyone want to ID this feather?
Ripples in sand
I love seeing the beach like this..
I know some prefer pure white sand without all this stuff…
I heart natural beach debris…
And things like this..
Does anyone know what critter made this?
Peeps~We saw Dunlin, Western Sandpiper, Sanderling, two Red knot. Black bellied Plover and Rudy turnstone
I love seeing all these peeps
Its also nice to see people walking around the birds rather than straight thru them like many beach walkers do.
Another Fine morning in Sanibel
