Sunset and Driller Moon Snails.

We tripped over to Breakwater beach in Brewster to catch a Cape Cod sunset and what a stunner it was.
We arrived at the beach about an hour before the sun was due to slink down the horizon. Plenty of time to explore tide pools and check out the Moon snails and Hermit crabs.
I liked the buoy’s waiting patiently for the tide to come in.

Here is a lovely slimey Moon snail. I learned that they can drill holes into other shellfish in order to eat them up. Which explains the perfect round holes in some of the shells we have found. Delicious!
