The darnedest things

We see the darnedest things wash up on the beach, but this is the first time I've seen a sweet potato. Crabs and birds were a bit puzzled by it too.

There were also dozens of large sweet onions (similar to the Vidalia variety), washed up along a three mile stretch of beach. They must have fallen off a boat somewhere out in the Gulf.

I would have stopped to get photos of the onions, too, but all the sea turtle patrolers are currently getting a DEP escort each morning to get the all-clear for cleaning crews. I don't think mine would have appreciated a stop to take photos of onions. It is only when I finish the first part of run and head back to the Ranger Station alone that I can take time to snap a few photos.
