Look for Me by the Sea
|Type||Great Base Lodge|
|Distance||Walker's Choice: 10 plus miles of trails|
|Highlights||Sun, Sand, Marsh, Food, Drink, Life. Bill Sargent plumbed his big toe into the wet sand and pulled out a Moon Snail, round and glistening. All morning long that toe had been a snail-seeking missile, unerringly locating the strangely lovely mollusks hidden well below the tide line on Crane Beach in Ipswich, MA.|
Bill Sargent, a naturalist, author, and consultant to the NOVA Science series, had agreed to take a nature walk with me at low tide on an early fall morning. In a few hours I received a better education than in any biology textbook. For example, did you know that the Horseshoe Crab has nine eyes, including in its tail?
