Beach Combing in the San Blas
24 January 2012
We are presently sharing our paradise with friends Karen and Pat, who have joined us for two weeks.
This photo was taken of Karen with her catch. After a few very lucrative walks along the beaches throughout the San blas. Steve found the very shiny and polished sea heart, purse bean and the Sunrise tellin. Pat found the large sea biscuit and Karen found the beautiful conch. I found the right handed lightening whelk, juvenile queen conch, penshell and the starnut palm and pointed to the numerous different finds scattered along the beach like the checkered nerites & moonsnails, limpets and falselimpets, stony corals and rams horn squid shells. I didn't recall all those names but I have a wonderful book that helps us to recognize and distinguish our finds.
