The trail to the Main Beach led through several small dunes. The meadows between the dunes were filled with numerous pink flowers. The Sea Pink, Marsh Pink or Rose of Plymoth (Sabatia stellaris) have five bright pink petals. The petals are separated from the bright yellow center by a distinct carmine colored line. Sea-Pinks range along the Atlantic shore from Maine to Florida.
Besides bird watching, swimming and beach combing, we also seined!
