low tide shelling June 2013

When the sand bars are exposed just off the shore line, it’s so much fun to see what you can find in all the nooks and crannies of the sand barely covered by water. On yesterday’s post, I mentioned that I walked quite a few beaches for the Super Moon really low tide but I didn’t get a chance to show you what the beach looked like near Tarpon Beach (closest public parking is Trost Lot off Tarpon Bay Rd). Each beach looks so different! I took a quick video to show you what I found in the shallow water in between the sand bar and the shoreline…  And you’ll see how I found the favorite shell of the day I showed you… the BROAD PAPER COCKLEAs I was walking, I saw the shape and color looked so different from the other fragments so I bent down to see what it was. Aha!
