Maybe one of you far-off readers can help me…are sand-dollars a Pacific Northwest kind of species, or do you find them everywhere?
Common or not, I was very please to find a number of sand-dollar shells on the beach. And then one of the girls found something that was (to me) more rare: a bed of living sand-dollars, covered in short grey hairs.
I have no idea whether the hairs help them to move or catch food or what, but they look a little bizarre when compared with the smooth white forms that I’m used to seeing.
Oh, and speaking of dollars (nice segue, hmm?), I just received a very happy and long-awaited bit of news from husband. He has a definite job offer from this school, so we will be moving to Florida in August!
(Apologies to parents, et al. for announcing it this way, but it’s hard to keep the good new in.)
