It was super low tide during sunrise at Lighthouse Beach this morning (-0.8!!) and boy was it worth it for me to get up early for it! Allow me to introduce you to just a few of my fabulous finds.
Mr. Lightning Whelky McWelkerson and Ms. Pear Whelk:
(clockwise, starting on the left) McWhelkerson's first cousin, the Juvenile Fighting Conch Shell Twins (they're fraternal), Ms. Dainty Banded Tulip and Mr. Moony, aka Moonsnail or Shark's Eye.
Ms. Sunray Venus:
And finally, Ms. Apple Murex, Mr. True Tulip (if he wore clothes, it would be a suit and tie) and Mr. Black Scallop (he's kinda emo)
No matter how I'm feeling, a sunrise at Lighthouse Beach always puts things into perspective for me. Sunrises here are simply spectacular and they always make me feel connected to something greater than myself. All the blingy shells don't hurt either.
