Comments:
a large bed of Blue Mussels lies scattered in the beach sand. in spite of not being on rock, or maybe because of it, this large mussel bed has been in this location for many years. I suspect the sand in the flesh of the mussel makes them less likely to be eaten by either human or animal. Hopefully, this is making good seed stock for the surrounding rocky areas.
