Beware Of The Shell
Yesterday we spent the day at Ft. Desoto Park beach
We saw dolphins playing offshore, a stray sting ray or two, and a few friendly grouper who seemed very comfortable around groups of humans in the water.
Then I found this innocuous bivalve shell in the water and set it on our blanket to keep the two sides attached until it was time to go home.
Later, I picked it up and saw a bunch of long legs in it...
Turns out a large spider taken refuge inside the shell presumably to get away from the heat.
Talk about heebie jeebies. Yeah, it wasn't all fun at our day at the beach.
