St. Martins & the Bay of Fundy

St. Martins Beach is a three-mile, crescent-shaped beach on the Bay of Fundy and is my favorite beach walking & combing spot. I can see Nova Scotia, often quite clearly, about 35 miles across the bay. We are opposite the area around Middleton, NS. The following cards are inspired by beach walks and what I find on the beach.

Bay of Fundy Sea Urchins 1. 
One November day I found about 30 intact sea urchins on the beach. A rare find.

Seaglass Fiddleheads.
Fiddleheads are edible wild ferns so iconic of NB they feature in the provincial crest.

Bay of Fundy Starfish. 
The same day as the sea urchin find, the beach was covered with dead sea stars, maybe 300 in all.

Beach Bird. 
In February 2012, I found this piece of driftwood on the beach & couldn't resist trying out a bird.

Seastar/Seaglass.
The correct name for starfish is seastar.

Bay of Fundy Sand Dollars 4. 
There are 12 images in the series. Sand dollars are rare finds in St. Martins, but the fishermen sometimes give me ones brought up in traps.
