|Half of a Zodiac XDC inflatable|
Things I sadly didn't get pictures of in situ included one complete and two fragmentary lobster trap buoys, cast all the way up to the edge of the dune grass.

Not to mention all the things that were lost back to the sea before I even got there, thanks to a brisk offshore breeze.
