Oh, how the sand sparkles!

Notes from the field: Day 26

We accomplished our first snorkel survey and it went very well!  We were able to map and better document two wrecks close to shore.  The sun was out so photographs were much better.  Did you know that there are places in Indiana where the sand actually sparkles?  I mean really sparkles!  Apparently the one site is or was close to a steel mill and such metal particles were once air-born.   Hmmmm….Still the sparkly sand was very pretty.  The wrecks themselves are actually very interesting.  The one wreck was an absolute haven for big bass.  They were very curious as to what we were doing.

Cheers 🙂

    Very neat to hear about the bass sanctuary. Are you seeing massive evidence of non-native species invasion?
