At one location amid the seaweed, I noticed the bottle cap and a seed of some kind. I could not tell exactly what kind of seed it was and it seemed to be growing, so I pulled it out for a closer look and found two signs of life. One end of the seed had well developed barnacles from its time in the water, but at the other end, a green sprout was just beginning to come out of the brown shell.
Nature can be quite amazing with the resilience of her many life forms. I enjoyed seeing all the different things along the beach and look forward to more trips back to the beach with R.
