Walk in the wrack line with my old friend Thomas today and we found this kelp crab. So beautiful and we hardly ever get to see them. #crab #wrackline #pacificnorthwest #pacificbeach #pacificocean #oregon #oregoncoast #sitka #sitkacenter #sitkacenter #art #oregonartist #drawing #livethelife #lincolncity #lincolncityoregon #taft #taftbeach #siletzbay

A #WrackLine is the debris along the beach that usually marks the high tide. ~~~ This is a great place to look for shells, rocks and other beach stuff.
Resting trash face . And other assorted wrack line trash.

Super windy trip to the beach today, I think this tooth from a harbor seal. #beachcombing #beachtreasures #beach #pnw #pacificocean #lowtide #wrackline
Scusset Beach on Cape Cod Bay was covered with “mermaid’s purses” the other day. To learn what makes these strange looking seashore objects, check out the link in my profile. #naturewalk #naturestudy #capecodnature #beachcombing #mermaidspurse #eggcase #leucorajaerinacea #wrackline
OMG check out the size of the mermaid purse!! Seriously didn't know they got this big! This one is likely from a big skate, which uniquely can hold up to seven eggs. And even cooler that it washed up because elephant seals like to eat them. #mermaidpurse #skateeggcase #beachtreasures #beachcombing #beachfinds #wrackline #oceantreasures #pnw #pacificocean #getoutside
It’s a girl 😡 Found this on the shore tangled up in the seagrass and seaweed this morning. Releasing balloons for gender reveal parties is irresponsible. While you’re celebrating your baby, you’re likely killing somebody else’s baby. #ballonsblow #balloons #itsagirl #whatgoesupmustcomedown #pollution #litterbug #genderreveal #wrackline #miamibeach #beach #treaurehunting #keybiscayne #lifeaquatic #seaweed
I’ve got a question for the #fishexperts out there: what happens to the animals that inhabit sargassum seaweed once the seaweed blows ashore? I loved finding tiny sargassum crabs, shrimp, frog fish, and even a nudibranch today, but as the tide fell, I felt sad for all the animals getting stranded - hence my attempt at frog fish rescues! I moved a few from puddles of shallow water to the seagrass bed, so they had plenty of water and could hide. But the seagrass is not their normal habitat, so did I just prolong the inevitable? Will any seaweed float back out to sea, taking its animal community along? Or do the animals all become meals for the birds once they get blown to shore? #histriohistrio #sargassumfrogfish #sargassum #sargassosea #sargassumfish #sargassumseaweed #seaweed #questions #ocean #marinebiology #fishwhisperer #fishexpert #conservation #seagrass #fisharefriends #wildliferescue #seagulls #wrackline #miami
A bunch of sargassum seaweed and seagrass has blown ashore, creating a temporary habitat inhabited by tiny critters, like this itty bitty sargassum frog fish 🧡💛🧡💛🧡💛🧡💛 #sargassumfrogfish #sargassum #wrackline #marinelife #frogfish #habitat #aquatic #lifeaquatic #justkeepswimming #squee #babyanimals #macro #seagrass #turtlegrass #manateegrass #seaweed #sargassumfish #histriohistrio

And the really minis... any of these would fit on a dime! #wrackline #floridashells #tinyshells
Juvenile #floridafightingconch . All less than two inches, some less than one. #wrackline #conchshell #conchs #floridashells
Florida #wentletraps . I think these may be #angulatewentletraps (#humphreyswentletrap is the other type, with thicker ribs). #epitonium #floridashells #wrackline
Found many of these small snail shells in the #wrackline . About the size of a pea and flat... guessing they are actually tree/land snails... anyone know? Thanks! UPDATE: thanks to @aliveglass I have the answer! #southernflatcoil land snails. #polygyra #floridasnails #floridashells #landsnails #smallshells

Back on #sanibel #beachcombing with the wonderful @shellekelle !!! Found my first Sanibel #wentletrap at our very first stop. #wrackline #angulatewentletrap
The wrack line, debris left by the high tide usually made up of ell grass, shells, kelp and feathers. #beachsidelife #wrackline #shells

This morning’s bounty! I love #beachcombing and when I discovered #seabeans a few years ago it was like a whole new hunt! It’s rare I find #nickernuts #nickerbeans Never more than 5 in a year’s time.. but this morning I found 22! #allinonewalk #grateful #excited #beachwalk #wrackline #wracklife #nickarnut #seed #floater #seapearl #Guilandiabonduc #drifters #driftbeans #mermaidlife #mermaidswag
Sooo much kelp on the beach you can barely tell there’s a little live creature under your feet... see it??? #watchwhereyoustep #californiabrownseahare #brownseahare #seahare #lowtide #wrackline #marinelife #seashore
A tiny doll's arm #waves on the sand. This miniscule fragment from #childhood filled me with such a sense of achiement when I spotted it, as though I had been specially chosen by the tides to find it on the #beach in that given moment. The instance between the lost and found is serendipitous as my reading of the tideline brought context to this lost and forgotten object. To another person, it may be considered unimportant and useless. We read significance into a sandy storyline, where meaning is shifting twice a day. No longer a fragment of plastic rubbish to me, it has transcended into a cherished trinket, elevated from the #sand and earning a place in my precious #collection . . #flotsam #beachcombingfinds #beachcombing #lostandfound #foundobject #brokendoll #tideline #strandline #wrackline #beach #highwatermark #toy #futurefossil #plastic #wave #curating #collecting
#Smarties lids are a common denominator on the #strandline . The inclusion of a different letter inside each lid heralds the start of an anagram puzzle sent from the deep. I often compare #foundobjects on the tideline to an anagram, where, like the alphabet, they are familiar but their ordering does not quite make sense. I grapple with a stranded syntax, trying to make sense of a dialogue with the seas. Punctuated by lunar rhythms, it's a beguiling story which remains just out of reach, never quite making sense but is always familiar. An #uncanny reflection of ourselves. . #tideline #strandline #wrackline #highwatermark #beachcombingfinds #beachcombing #lostandfound #collection #alphabet #nostalgia #sweets
310:365 | Take away is not such a pretty picture.. . The violet sea-snails were still home so I relocated these to a nearby rockpool. Is there an accepted approach I should know about?

Rainy morning for #sunrise on the beach. Picking up #trash and #balloons I found these tiny #toy #palmtrees in the #wrack along with several #seabeans Lots of #treasure to be had.. depending on your idea of treasure. 🌊☀️🐚🌴#treasurehunting #beachcombing #wrackline #wracklife #morningwalk #mermaidlife #mermaidswag #mybliss
The humble 10p novelty egg. These epitomise my memories of seaside holidays. It seems ridiculous now to say that depositing 10p of my pocket money into a machine to watch a plastic egg drop from a mechanical chicken brought me so much excitement but the not knowing of what lay inside was pure magic. I think when I walk the tideline today, the same joy in the unpredictable and random still stirs within me. The halves of this egg were found independently on different beaches but I instantly recognised them from my 1980's childhood. Anyone else remember these plastic eggs? #seaside #amusements #novelty #plastictat #nostalgia #10pegg #plasticegg #toy #pocketmoney #holiday #beachcombing #collecting #collection #curation #britishseaside #tideline #strandline #wrackline #highwatermark #foundobject #museumofforgottenthings

The dead stare of a china #doll 's face I spotted on a San Francisco #tideline . Huge container ships ghosted along the horizon heading towards the international date line, perhaps full of identical versions of objects we'll love for a week then forget. I wondered how far this sad, soulless face had travelled before I set eyes on it. It remains one of my most startling and creepy #beach finds. . #HappyHalloween #flotsam #collection #beachcombing #undead #pacific #tidelin #strandline #wrackline #highwatermark #beach #liminalspace
