As found on the beach. Poor little guy.
As washed up on Huntington Beach.
At least it looks like he is. I’m sure he’s using some sort of magic trick.
We see these on our morning beach walks. I like watching them pace the shoreline, busily stabbing the sand until it yields breakfast.
The tide was so high today, this guy nearly made it into the dunes. He was quite intimidating, even if he was clearly never going to move again. If you happen to be a card-carrying sharkologist, please feel free to correct me, but think it might be an Atlantic sharpnose shark.

Completed in 2011 by father and son architects, Fort Shell was built for the protection of shells.
Low tide effected more creature seeking this morning. The 4-year-old had no reservations about holding this one -which was immediately dubbed the eyeball- in his hand. Expert creature-finder John told us it’s a Shark Eye snail. It was safely returned to the ocean, of course.
More beach time today. It was too breezy to go swimming, but the 4-year-old managed to stay busy by plowing the shoreline.
