Full Moon Low Tide-tastic

A full moon means one thing people, low tide.  This low tide came at the perfect time, an hour before sunset and boy was it a doozy.  We walked out on the normal low tide sand bar only to realize that this tide had reveled another further out.  It was spectacular and as a storm brushed the coast we enjoyed the views.  As the family dug in the wet sand I scoured the pools for treasure.  Look at what I found!  A beautiful Lace Murex was peaking out only 2 little spikes and I dug her out of the sand.  One of the prettiest shells I have ever seen.

When my son and I explored the tide pools on the north side we found crabs, like this little guy hiding everywhere.  We even found an empty crab shell and a huge Olive.  A very nice couple gave the boys two Sand Dollars out of their bag which was exploding.  You can find the nicest people on the beach, I know it always makes me feel good to give a tourist a treasure to take home.  These are the first Sand Dollars we have collected!  What an amazing night!
