  •  Horse shoe crabs are not true crabs, and are more closely related to terrestrial spiders than blue crabs.
  • Often called "living fossils," horseshoe crabs have existed for more than 300 million years.
  • Although their spikes and spines may look dangerous, horseshoe crabs are harmless.
  • Just like other arthropods, horseshoe crabs must molt to grow. They leave their old shells behind and grow a new, larger shell.

Bonnie Hunter's 2015 Mystery

I finally have all my rows together and this weekend I hope to get the top done :0)

The beach keeps calling me away from my sewing machine!

texture in the sand from wind and water.
Have you finished your mystery quilt?

Even cloudy days are beautiful on the beach

Like freshly fallen snow foot prints, pristine wind blown sand.
