This little fella assumed he had the beach all to himself as no other gulls nor humans were in sight.... that is until my mother and I appeared. Needless to say he went about his business and we ours. Winter storms known to produce high winds and strong currents cause the ocean floor to become "stirred" up.... hence all the seaweed and rocks seen this day. Typically, by summer the beach is clear and the sand shines white once again. Below a sandbar.... at low tide one can walk or wade across to neighboring Marsh Island. It is imperative you remain mindful of the changing tide.... people have been known to become stranded and needless to say incur a lengthy wait for the tide to change.
On "Little Sandy" as this beach is referred to no rocks nor clumps of seaweed to be seen....just my mom day dreaming of summer days to come.
