Summer, Beach & Relax = Chincoteague Island — What We Did Last Weekend

Motion and Wildlife

We hiked along the shore, observing the dynamics of the place: sand, sea shells, water and sunlight soaked every view. At first sight, the shore seems to lack wildlife. But when you stop and observe things closely, you discover small interesting creatures.

Tiny crabs building their nests in the sand, colorful clams opening their ingesting tubes with the rhythm of the waves, and one of the last living fossils on Earth: the horseshoe crab. This big and ugly arthropod has blue blood and dates from 450 million years, before plants even existed! We collected some Dali-shaped clams, surfed some waves, and slept several naps.
