After Hurricane Irma – at Casuarina Point

Good morning from Camp David!  It is a gorgeous day!

We are back in business.  As you can see 2 of our boats are in the water, because we had guests arrive at two houses yesterday.  It is great fishing weather and also perfect for hanging out on the beach.  We are so thankful!

On Monday afternoon the breeze was back to normal, and I went on one more treasure hunt on the beach.  My main objective was to save any conch or anything else alive that was stranded by the winds and high tides.  I did find several that I put back in the water, and I hope they all lived!

This beautiful Sea Star probably didn’t make it. It was starting to get soft when I found it, and in the water they are very hard. I still put it back in the water and HOPE it made it! They are SO BEAUTIFUL to see in the water!

I found 3 HUGE conch shells – still alive – and HOPE they lived!  They were hard to get back in the water, because they are surprisingly heavy!

In the short video above, I was hoping to capture some movement, but didn’t get much.  It is a good, up close picture of the animal though.

I found several live queen conch, of various sizes, stranded by the seaweed and tides, too.

This video shows the larger conch moving:

Some other interesting finds from Monday’s walk:
