Day 26 #beachphotochallenge is Red. I was pretty excited to find three dead crabs to stack this on, but I traded a 1950s pig-shaped syrup bottle (I already found one) with @chesapeake_sea_glass for this red glass gemstone on Friday at Dead Horse Bay in NY because she found two. Then on Saturday at the Mid-Atlantic Sea Glass Festival l had a little zip-loc bag with some favorite finds from the day before, sand included, and an antiques dealer told me it was from a prize ring that used to be given out at amusement parks, probably the very close-by Coney Island (swipe to see the other angle, showing the broken off sides). 🎪🎡🎠 Elese and I should've gotten a photo of the two gemstone pieces for twin day! I loved seeing all those twin posts yesterday. 💕Happy Monday everyone! 😊♥️❣️🦀

A #horseshoecrab was rolling in the surf yesterday. @heaterfeater told me they existed alongside dinosaurs.

Blunt Force Trauma on Alley #3. Definitely homicide...sometime in the early hours of this morning.
Quite shocking to see this poor old girl smashed in first thing in the morning.

Day 23 - Tiny. Day 24 - Beach Pets. #beachphotochallenge I thought I would combine these two days. This is the tiniest horseshoe crab molt (shell) I've ever found. Slide for more pictures of these amazing creatures. By the beginning of the spawning season, each female will have developed about 80,000 eggs, which are located in dense masses near the front of her shell. She will return to the beach on successive tides, laying 4-5 clutches of eggs with each tide. Each cluster contains about 4,000 eggs and a female will lay about 20 egg clusters each year. #horseshoecrab #beach

The Delaware National Estuarine Research Reserve consists of two
components: 1,087 acres of freshwater wetlands, ponds, and forest lands in
Blackbird Creek, and 5,119 acres of salt marsh and open water habitats on
the St. Jones River on Delaware Bay.

The Blackbird Creek watershed is a predominantly rural area consisting of
wetlands, forests, and agricultural lands. The St. Jones River watershed
has significant development in upstream non-tidal area, where urbanized
Dover dominates the middle and upper watershed.

Habitats found in this reserve support major spawning areas for horseshoe
crabs each spring, and the resulting eggs provide fuel for migratory
shorebirds.

Wonderful beach trip! Lilly made a friend, cleaned up trash, found a tiny crabby and tried saving horseshoe crabs! (But they were already beached and dead 😔) #savethefishies #sandcloudambassador #letsmakeadifference #horseshoecrab #wildwoodnj #ocean #clams #beachcleanup

A walk on beach turned into a memerable rescue mission.
