It Came From the Sea…..John Vonderlin Reports

Story & Photos by John Vonderlin

Last week there was another of those weird wracks onshore at Invisible Beach. It’s marine debris load was dull, but there was several formerly living things in the seaweed I couldn’t remember seeing before.

I’ve attached a photo of one of the specimens, probably an algae.

I also attached a photo of another “squid” I found in the same wrack. It’s an ugly one with lots of odd things entangled.

At one point I had my collection of squids hanging all in a line on one wall of my redwood gazebo, calling it “The Wall of Shame.” Not even I, a great admirer of loathsome marine debris of all kinds, could not stand it after a while and had to pack it away. Enjoy. John
