A goldmine of flotsam

After a prolonged spell of unusually hot weather, Phillip Island has turned on a savage cold front with gale force winds and a huge sea.

Consequently, the flotsam along the seashore is rich and varied. Sponges of all shapes, colors and sizes; sea urchins; cuttlefish; crab shells; sea squirts; abalone shells; driftwood, silver with age; and mountains of sea grass.

One of my greatest pleasures is to explore the seashore after heavy seas, and share this pleasure with you.  It truly is a gold mine of interest.
