History showing… Pamela Breitberg 3 weeks ago Usually one doesn’t look at the ground when observing a Palm tree. Here, this living tree’s base shows signs of erosion from winds and tides. Also telling stories are the bits of seashells in the sand. This Palm is at water’s edge so much has happened nearby over seasons past and current. Copyright 2023 Pamela Breitberg This is the more popular view of the Palms in south Florida. Copyright 2023 Pamela Breitberg Lauderdale by the Sea is the “shore dive capital of Florida” with three reefs one can reach easily from the shore. No boat is needed. This means LBTS also has interesting beach finds. This morning I found this large chunk of Coral washed up on the beach. Other morning may be a variety of sponge pieces. Of course shells are also present in the sands. History is present in the washed up Coral. Sea shells once embedded in the Coral partly remain. Holes were where sea creatures hid for protection. How old this piece of Coral is can be anyone’s guess. Read more about LBTS diving here.
