The Last Hurrah

The Gulf was pretty angry this morning and it was very windy due to upcoming storms. It was obvious pretty quickly that one would need to be creative. But the sunrise never fails to impress!

The tidal pool offered very little this morning, but the live tulips and fighting conchs were still there...
You can see in the distance the salt spray, and the foam on the beach, this is a rarity here on the beach, the gulf is usually pretty calm...almost like a lake at times.

I ran into my new found Facebook friends, Cheri & Carol and told them goodbye, they weren't having much luck either.  We will meet again, soon I hope!

I did manage to find a place with pen shells to dig, but that didn't last very long as the tides were coming in very quickly. But, I got a few treasures!
...and I got another Alphabet cone, a nice paper fig and a tiny lace murex...
a tiny little keyhole limpet 
...and horse conch
Have I mentioned how much I love this beach?
Thanks so much for coming along with me on this trip, stay tuned, I have a few more stories to tell!
