The sand dollar pictured above looks like a typical sand dollar~I took this picture with my iPhone at Dash Point.
But the live ones...
Look like this~Top side.
The back side of that same sand dollar-It feels real fuzzy.
Here are some underwater...Look real close and you will see a few real tiny white ones.
If you go to Dash Point and can't find the sand dollars don't fret... You just have to look harder. I find them on the far left side of the shore every time I go...
This is what they look like most the time on the beach. They hide under the sand. If you dig down even a 1/4 inch you will find hundreds. The arrows in the picture above show the edges of some of the sand dollars that have burrowed down.
There is also a resident blue heron... It was so funny to watch him walking right along side these ladies like he was part of their outing.
BUT I'd have to say that the most beautiful sighting that day was this precious little girl running and laughing along the shore. She is adorable!
(You guys really didn't think I would do a post without my granddaughter in it did you?) ;)
