I found a horseshoe crab that had washed up on the beach. Poor guy!
We grew up calling these black things 'a mermaid purse'. All my life I thought they were shark eggs, but I found out today that they're really skate egg cases! There were TONS on the beach.
I had to look up what this spiral thing is... Apparently it's a whelk egg case!
I also saw this random, crazy tree growing out of the sand, and is evidently being propped up by a board.
Happy Thanksgiving, everybody!
