Sunset at the Cherry Grove Pier, November 1, 2008

If you drive to the very end of the road of the Cherry Grove, SC beach at low tide (just past the Cherry Grove Pier), you’ll encounter a wide stretch of tide pools and can cross the inlet to the island. This is a great place to find interesting sea creatures. David (pictured in the sunset) found a sea cucumber on the sand. It didn’t seem particularly healthy, but we brought it home and added it to the aquarium. It expanded and started pumping water through its body. The starfish ambled over and checked it out, but didn’t try to eat it. I unintentionally have an echinoderm theme going on in the aquarium, with two starfish, a sea urchin, and the sea cucumber. I haven’t seen a living sand dollar yet, but it would fit right in.
