The Pink Stuff
Last Saturday we participated in the statewide coastal clean up (which actually was a global event!). We went to the same beach as last year and were quite surprised that we didn't find that much trash.
What we did see a lot of was this pink stuff - and I have no idea whether it is a plant or an animal (remains of jellyfish perhaps?). It is rather common at our beaches and I would like to know what it is - perhaps one of you can enlighten me?
This looks different from the ones in the top pictures:
The pink stuff in the very top picture and the two following ones I find rather fascinating - all these pictures were shot "blind" with my camera sitting directly on the sand.
I know what - or better who - this pink stuff is!
And there are no explanations necessary for this one either. (There were several all over the beach - of course it would be interesting to know WHY they were here.)
Here is the entire family - we're about half way through the beach clean up at this point.
