I don't know why so many horseshoe crabs were washing up onto the beach that week but it was really strange! We go down to our condo a few times every year to enjoy the Jersey Shore and the beach, and I don't ever recall seeing so many horseshoe crabs on the beach like we did in early September.
The previous year we saw a LOT of Jellyfish on the beach, but not a lot of horseshoe crabs. I am not sure why we saw so many, but they were pretty to look at (the "alive" ones) but the dead ones...well, the seagulls were having a field day and dinner with those!
Enjoy our travel photo of the week!
