Late Season Beaning

It's been a while since we have been roaming the beach looking for seeds so we took advantage of the afternoon and after feeding our bait shrimp to the whiting in the surf, we spent an hour in search of sea beans.

The summer crowds have all but left but someone was using this log as a campfire.

The pickings were slim - I saw a few busted sea coconuts and some interesting trash but not many beans.

Tracy on the other hand found a couple of keepers.

This hamburger was easily visible as its dark color stood out on the light sand.

It is always a thrill to find one of these peeking out of the wrack.

Today's collection included some beach glass, a sundial, a dime and a piece of tar or jet.

One of the hamburgers was large and dark. Could this be a new variety or just an unusual specimen?

Here it is compared to the two other hamburgers.

It was good to be back on the beach again. I couldn't help but think of how many beans might be just below trhe beach - covered by the blowing sand.
