The best bit of my little retreat has been the WALKING and the LOOKING. Seeing the difference the tide makes to the beach each day, watching the creek choose a different path with each tide to empty through the sand.
I had hoped to find a sea anemone to match the one we found a month or so ago at Somers beach. So far I have found at least one every day! I wonder how long it takes for the anemone shell to be tumbled around in the sea for all it’s weed and parts to fall off and become smooth?
The other thing I have learnt, by default, is the correct spelling of anemone. I never knew that before. I am remembering by saying it to myself as ‘ain-moan’.
Apparently they are ‘a group of water-dwelling, predatory animals of the order Actiniaria. They are named for the anemone, a terrestrial flower. Sea anemones are classified in the phylum Cnidaria, class Anthozoa, subclass Hexacorallia.’ Wikipedia
