Last Saturday, I had the opportunity to go out to Sanibel Island for the morning. My Daughter, Agatha, had a school assignment out there and I went along for the ride. It was sunny, but windy and cold! I was also surprised at how foggy it was. So of course, the first thing I look at when I am at the Beach, are the Waves in the Gulf of Mexico.(*) And then, I look left and right. Then, I look down at the Beach itself.
I saw an “earth circle,” which is what I call a natural formation that makes a circle. (A Medicine Wheel.) This one is made of a spindy vine of some kind. I saw a nice Pen Shell. Note the air holes in the sand next to it. Those may be from sand crabs. The purple pointy object, is a small Sea Urchin. It was smaller than a golf ball. The last photo (with the snake looking object,) is a Welk Egg Case.
(*) You must keep in mind that the Beach is on the Gulf of Mexico which is to the West. I’ve been here in Southwest Florida for almost 30 years. However, I spent my formative summers at the Shore, which faces EAST. So, anytime I am orienting myself even to this day, I have to consciously think about where I am.
