I happened upon this scene one day while exploring Shell Island with the kids. Sea Urchin “shells” are the extremely fragile exoskeleton of the spiny urchins that remain after the urchin dies. These break easily with the slightest pressure. To have so many washed up unbroken and in horizontal line was simply amazing.
Photo Description: Interwoven with seagrass, the urchins shells aligned along the bayside shore of Shell Island.
