Coast Walk 17: Bracy Cove to Roberts Point, May 17, 2017
From top to bottom, left to right:
Row 1: Razor Clam (Ensis directus), lobster trap rope, Horse Mussel (Modiolus modiolus), Common Slipper Shell (Crepidula fornicata)
Row 2: pink granite beach stone, Rock Crab (Cancer irroratus), driftwood, Common Periwinkle (Littorina littorea)
Row 3: Waved Whelk (Buccinum undatum), Quahog (Mercenaria mercenaria), severely worn shell (probably Quahog) crab claw, aluminum can top, Moon Snail (Lunatia heros), beach stone
There will be two still life photos from this walk – I usually try to do one per walk, but this one was broken into so many short sections (I’ll explain why in the main post) and there were so many good beachcombing areas that I had too much for one photo, so I kept them separated by date. Research for this section of the coast is proceeding slowly, mostly because my personal and work lives have been so busy. We’re renovating a dilapidated but lovely old house, and if you’ve ever done that you know how all-consuming it can be!
