Cape Cod Beach Life

The tidewrack, tideline or line of debris left by the high tide contains many wonders of the sea.

The horseshoe crab is noted for its ancestry. It has blue blood and is so well adapted it has remained virtually unchanged for 250,000,000 years. The blue crab is the one we eat. The fiddler crab lives in salt marshes.

The starfish, like man, includes oysters in his diet. The devil’s purse is the egg case of a skate fish. The common barnacle swims about when young before settling down. Many other treasures of the tide will greet the eye of the beachcomber.

Try beachcombing and find:

Something old, something new,
Something fresh from the ocean blue
And some Cape Cod sand in your shoe
