This small piece of algae washed up during the sunrise and brought back so many memories! Funny, cause it just looks like a slimy little “tree” sticking up from the sand. I took a Phycology class in college. Everything you ever wanted to know about the biology of algae and seaweed! I was a marine biology major at the time, so it made sense to take the class about what many marine animals would be eating…turns out it was a tough class (and kind of boring, sorry Dr.Liddle !). There are more types of algae than I ever imagined !! Unfortunately, out of sight out of mind, and I don’t know what type this is, but it made for an interesting little reflection shot!
On Saturday, we put Lucy in her stroller and Frankie on his leash and went hiking through Allaire State Park . There is a small colonial village and multiple trails through the woods. We hiked the green and red trails. This is one of the views along the way. I love the hidden bridge and of course all the color (yes, i took this shot last fall..). The view looked the same this past Saturday, just minus the red! We had our hands full with Lucy and Frankie so no photos this trip but definitely next time! 🙂 For more info on the park http://www.state.nj.us/dep/parksandforests/parks/allaire.html
