What's washed up this week?


Sometimes I like to walk along the beach and check out some of the life that's washed up. This curious concoction (above) is something that intrigued me, I can see shells underneath but not sure what the red blobs or the white bubbles are up on top.


Sea lettuce attached to shells doesn't surprise me. Every Summer around January this green stuff gets washed up over the waves, sometimes it's a bit of a pain.


Different kinds of seaweed and sponge get washed up, I like the ones that you can pop with your fingers.


This lone starfish was all by itself, seems something might have had a munch on the ends before the tide bought it up to the beach.

Linking up with Our World Tuesday :-)

Great photos. I like the seaweed you can pop with your fingers as well. Hubby calls them sea grapes (a fun name). That first photo looks like somebody cooked a bunch of bay scallops and put a silver pearl in the middle of it. I will pass on a taste of it :)

Hello, interesting finds. I like the starfish. Enjoy your day and the new week!

Being from 'above' the equator, I find the phrase "Every Summer around January" a bit intriguing.

That first thing is a bit gnarly, I feel compelled to find a stick and flip it over. You get some cool stuff on your beaches, starfishes and sponges don't normally make it this way.

An interesting find.

Some of them have quite an alien look to them.

Interesting finds on the beach. The starfish looks like it had seen better days. I like looking for sea glass, the different colours are nice to find. You gets lots of clear, some green, brown and occasionally blue and if you're lucky, red.

I agree Amy, treasure hunting when the tide recedes can turn up some weird and wonderful treasuures 😊 Apart from that it's just fab being on the beach!

Sharon said...

What a great variety of sea life you've found here. I feel like I've had a walk on the beach and I thank you for that.

It must be a pleasure to walk along the beach and make such discoveries. The first photo is a real mystery.

It's fine when the treasure is on the beach - I don't like 'mysteries' with me in the water!

maybe the white bulbs are some kind of eggs, but the red stuff, Have no clue.
But a nice adventure it is.

Our starfish have gone through a bad bout with what they call wasting disease. They seem to just melt away into mush. - Margy
