Animal Vegetable Mineral

Beach Wrack.

Beach Wrack.

Eugenia found a hearteningly small amount of garbage at the beach this morning.

Animals.

Animals.

All the better to enjoy the other more interesting things offered up by the waves…like chitons, limpets, snails, sponges, fish, birds, crabs and giant barnacles…

Vegetables.

Vegetables.

Eelgrass, algae, driftwood!

Minerals.

Minerals.

Rocks, minerals and beach glass – wait a minute – is glass garbage or a mineral?

Vegetable/mineral

Vegetable/mineral

And sometimes the vegetables are attached to the minerals…

And if the animal is dead and rotted, and all that is left is the mineral, what then…is the silica in glass the same as the silica in a sponge? Is this science or  philosophy?

  1. Who knew Eugenia was into philosophy? I say glass with sharp edges is garbage, but when it is all frosty and smooth-edged, it’s getting back to mineral and a beautiful collectible.

  2. too many questions… LOL …I don’t know the answer to most of them. I hope her Hitty mom has better answers than I would, “Google” it! Lovely trip to the beach!
