Whidbey Island: A Photographic Tour – The Beach

As I mentioned in my last post, I took over 1200 pictures. Some great, some horrible, most tolerable. Don’t worry. I won’t share them all. That would be like going to great Uncle Horace’s house and watching his vacation slides. Great for insomniacs, bad for blog readers.

I am going to break them up, though. So today I give you…

THE BEACH

This is a moon snail. A big moon snail. There is nothing wrong with it. This is what a moon snail is supposed to look like. Poor little moon snail.




The girls peaking over the vastly interesting barnacle rock





Susan’s crabs, not to be confused with cooties

What a fun morning that was. Gretchen gave us bags to carry our finds in, but I was so busy taking photos that I only brought home three things. A sand dollar, a snail shell and a clamshell. And I don’t even think I actually gathered them off the beach. I think I pilfered them from someone else’s finds. But what are they going to do? Come get them?
