Life and Death at the Beach--in Photos


I took these pictures on Halloween when I went to the beach in Oregon. As someone who grew up landlocked, the ocean always feels like a mystical place to me. So many odd, unusual things washed up onto the shore. Pretty sure the tide would have deposited an entire alien civilization at my feet if I had stayed long enough :)

Mmm. Hope they're not poisonous.

Beach wildlife!



Do not touch the jellyfish.

What kind of magic beach washes up whole sand dollars?

I did not know what a live sand dollar looked like till I saw (touched) this one.


The CLAW!
