When a run turns into fruition!

Tuesday, February 5, 2013

After running races for a few years, I was totally burnt out. Until recently. I am feeling the sport again. And, although I am a self proclaimed weather geek (but, LOATHE Jim Cantore), I didn't realize how beautiful it is today in Southeastern North Carolina. So, I put on my running gear, uploaded some new songs, and headed out to run the loop. When I realized how warm it was, and that it was low tide, I decided to do it on the beach. I am so glad I did. The shells were great today! For those of you on Wrightsville Beach, they are up near the tide line on the north end, so combing the beach all day is possible! Here are some of the gems I found!
Auger with attached Coral and a Brown-banded Wentletrap.
Wittle tiny baby whelk.
Keyhole Limpet (Chinaman's Hat).
Wrightsville Beach in February!
Common Eastern Starfish.
Can you spot the two Keyhole Limpets (Chinaman's Hats)?
Another wittle tiny baby Whelk (technical term).
Sea Urchin no spikes, Sea Urchin spikes to right with seaweed intertwined.
Happy Hunting and Gathering!
Cheers Y'all!
