Where are all the rocks in Florida?????
UNDERWATER!!! The secret is out now! Rocks in Florida...who woulda thunk it??? Hehehe!
Here is the underside of one of my favorite shells from childhood! It is called an Atlantic Slipper Shell. These small, arched shells have a shelf underneath which protects the animal inside. When turned upside down, the shell looks like a slipper. It is sometimes known as a "Boat Shell". I used to call them Moon Shells! The little shelf inside is very smooth, and it was soothing to rub your thumb along it. I've never seen an animal inside.
The little tiki thatched roof leading to a condo! Sweet!!!
Seagrasses lining the beach, to help with erosion of the sand. They are so pretty in large groupings! Swaying in the sea breezes!
What is this little sea bean-like thingy? It was laying in the sand. It felt like coconut fibre. I picked it up to shake it to see if I could hear a bean, or anything inside...but no. Silent. It was a really neat little compact something-or-other, though! It was about 1.5 inches long.
A Halloween Pennant - Celithemis eponina dragonfly! There were many skimming around on the foliage! They are so pretty and you can see how they get their name! A yellowy-orange and black winged insect! Very beautiful, I must say!
Tomorrow I will post both the succulent plants and the spider I saw at the beach! Both VERY exciting for me to find. I'm hooked...must go back now more often to look for treasures!
