Winter has arrived in NE Florida . . . This morning we've awoken to our second overnight frost. North Florida is not the same as South Florida! This is true for most if not all of the states that I've been through both the N and S ends of. Anyway, after some weeks without, I finally had some chilly, overcast Beach Therapy earlier this week at "my" usual strip of shoreline at the mouth of Matanzas Inlet . . .
Even though it was slim pickin's, I did find some interesting bits . . . starting with first a white and then a black beach heart! Both are pieces of shell . . .
Another pretty blue-eyed shark's eye . . .
This was a nice surprise! Pricklycockles are very common on the Gulf coast, but at "my" beach, they are pretty rare . . .
This is also a rare find, the color that is! Slippersnails are pretty common but I don't think I've ever found a white-ish and mauve one . . .
This is about what my face / mood was that morning . . . I needed another shirt layer against the crisp morning air . . . This is actually an ark shell that a gastropod nibbled on . . .
It's always a thrill to find true seaglass (no sharp, no shiny), esp. with print!
The only thing better than a piece of sea glass, is two! No matter the size ;)
No colorful sunrise this morning . . . it even looks chilly . . .
