I noticed that the water was much clearer today...
The tidal pools didn't seem to be nearly as productive as they had been previously.... I did find an Alphabet and Florida Cone....But I didn't keep them, way too worn! I know, now I'm getting picky!! ;) I did keep the little Horse Conch!
I guess because I was going to the lighthouse, where I typically find minis, I did start noticing minis... Though the Wentletrap on the left is pretty large, a large mini!!
|Above the Wentletrap I believe is a Stocky Cerith, mini horseconchs, a tiny Shark's eye, a bright orange ribbed Cantharus, a tiny Lightning Whelk and at the top, the smallest sunray venus I have ever seen!|
I thought for a second I had scored a small Alphabet Cone....NOT, it was just the top and one side!
Then I had a bit of a dry spell, saw a lot of live shells....tonight I saw this BEAUTIFUL Live Paper Fig....Isn't he Gorgeous? Look at that color!!
I don't know what the black things are along the edge, but isn't he awesome, it felt very strange crawling on my hand.....I carefully put him back into the tidal pool where I found him!
I found this Huge piece of Coral there too!
This Banded Tulip has had a really hard life!!
I did find this pretty little True Tulip....
it was empty so into my shell bag he went, along with this almost albino little pear whelk....
and a few more minis

A live long spined Sea Urchin...
Thanks so much for coming along with me!
