On one of our walks after the hurricane, we found the beach changed but still a repository for the most interesting items. Of course, we always find individual shells. But now we have colonies of them washed up together:
This day, there was also a horseshoe crab shell that its owner had abandoned to grow a better one:
We thought at first this was some kind of sea animal but now we're pretty sure it's a part of a plant or tree or bush. It looks like a woody root. There were several of them, some smaller and some larger:
And though these yucca plants were in the dunes rather than on the beach, they were happily blooming despite the storm recently weathered.
Beautiful day and lovely walk!
