Q:What is this a picture of?
A: A Horseshoe Crab-Limulus polyphemus
I took the boys out on a walk this evening and went around the corner to our very own public beach. I had previously found this area on my morning jogs around the neighborhood. (It is a very pretty in the morning with the sun rising and the Herons, both white and great blue, out on the bay/marsh area...very nice despite the early hour). It runs along in front of some houses for about 100 yards and I wasn't sure if we were allowed on it. Then some residents came by and I asked them and it turns out there are no private beaches in this state. So we now have a very isolated, unknown beach around the corner from our house (with horseshoe crabs)!
