Beach Report 5/18/21

Some Mock or False Strawberries on our way down to the beach:

Potentilla indica known commonly as mock strawberry, Indian-strawberry, or false strawberry, is a flowering plant in the family Rosaceae. It has foliage and an aggregate accessory fruit similar to that of a true strawberry. It has yellow flowers, unlike the white or slightly pink flowers of true strawberries. It is native to eastern and southern Asia, but has been introduced to many other areas as a medicinal and an ornamental plant, subsequently naturalizing in many regions worldwide
Very bland, but:
"According to the FDA, "Mock, or Indian strawberries, while possibly less delicious than wild strawberries, do not produce toxicity when ingested".
A gorgeous day with blue skies, a slight, but rising SE wind, tide near the mid point and falling, and temperatures in the mid 60s. 

Do you see it? (click to zoom).
How about now?
