OCNJ Seashells

Ocean City, New Jersey was hit last year by Hurricane Sandy, and lost much of its sand. Apparently they pumped in more for this year’s beachgoers, and while the sand restored the surface area it wasn’t great for walking/sand castling because of the excessive shells.

Instead, we spent some time filtering the shells out. I was fascinated by the sheer number of really interesting shells we found – many of them smaller than a dime. The smallest shell here is just 7mm tip to tip.
