Full Moon at the Lighthouse

I met Liz at the Lighthouse this morning, she is another friend/admin from the Shellinators facebook page! We started out with only our flashlights, a full moon and the Lighthouse Light to guide us! My camera made it look much lighter than it actually was....that is Liz there, just under the lighthouse....


There were not a lot of shells out there, but we did have a long walk, picking up a few along the way....I found a nice small Pear Whelk
and right next to it was a Shark's Eye Operculum...
and believe it or not a small Alphabet Cone...

worn and tattered, but he went in my shell bag!
Liz found a small False Angel Wing....I found out later that it was actually a pair!
She also found this really cool Albino Apple Murex!
I did manage to find a few other minis.... Like this small Pear Whelk, Baby's ear, sharks eye and Winged oyster pair...
There were so many crabs out there...of all sizes and shapes! Most were small, and alive, if just barely....we tried to save several by taking them back out to the gulf since the tide was so low....The first was this Spider Crab....
Lots of Calico Crabs....small to very large!



...and the starfish (Sea Stars) I don't know how many of them were high and dry....we both were taking them to the nearest water we could find!



My most unusual find was this watch....it was almost under a log in the water....the battery was barely working...
After the sun came up, we were able to find a few smaller minis....like these two Wentletraps...
Liz actually found one first, in the dark!
I actually found quite a few minis!
...Liz took a pic of some of her favorites from today
As you know, I always have to finish off with a Sunrise pic....or two...

These Royal Terns were enjoying the sunset with us!
Stay tuned....More adventures to come...
