Outdoor Wednesday

It's Outdoor Wednesday time! Thank you to Susan, over at for hosting this event. Be sure to check out all the Outdoor Wednesday posts. We just returned from a beach vacation at Panama City Beach, Florida. We had 24 family members that made the trip. While there, we rented two pontoon boats to go out to Shell Island. On our way to Shell Island we stopped and got off the boat to investigate some marine life. This was absolutely fascinating! We were able to see and hold things that we normally just see in books or at the aquariums. In this picture, Chase is examining what he found. I am not sure what this is, but we will be looking these things up in our books. If anyone can help us out, please let us know.
One of Mike's cousins found this amazing creature. Once again, we were finding things that we didn't even know what they were.

Here is a sand dollar that was found.

We put everything back after inspecting it and went on to explore Shell Island. Now we are off to look up everything that we found. Such wonderful fun!
Enjoy your Wednesday!
