spectacle Island part 1
Here we are on spectacle Island, zee boat zee boat!!! Well once qwe got on spectacle it was pretty hot and humid. There was a nice breeze.
We went along the shoreline hunting for a good place to set our hulu hoop, transect. Our first one was high up on the beach. We measured it with a tape measure. 80 feet from lowtide and 16 feet from the sand berm.
we then were able to gather an abundance of
periwinkles well dead periwinkles were in abundance. many with holes in them.
Sand glass was everywhere! I never saw so much in my whole life talk about relative abundance. Artificial to environment would they be considered an invasive species? just joking.
