|Sea Urchin Shells|
Do you know - we found out something about all that sea grass - they push it up high on the beach so that it acts like a trap for sand and over the years (providing we don't get any more bad storms for a while) - the sand dunes will eventually build up higher thanks to that base of sea grass - pretty cool huh!
In one of the pictures below you can see me stood in the gap where one of the sand dunes use to be - it gives you an idea of how much sand was moved. We also got to watch the strangest looking Navy ship coming into to dock. We couldn't see any identifying number or name but we did find out it is a USNS - (T-EPF-4) Spearhead-class expeditionary fast transport ship. We also got to sea lots of Albatrosses - they didn't seem to like the windy conditions this morning and we also found some washed up beach treasures.
