Free Photos on Facebook
There were some sweet photos from the starting line available on Facebook soon after the race. A day or so later more photos from the trail portion of the 10 miler were posted.
#SeenOnARun #SceneOnARun -- I saw sand dollars, shells, sharks teeth, crabs, and coral on the beach. There were lots of big shells. The kind you don't find if you hit the beach later in the day.
Because of the natural landscape — Mangroves and driftwood — there's a lovely custom of hanging shells on tree branches. Some of the ornaments had names on them. It would be fun to go back and look at them more closely. There's a photo of the hanging shells in the course description above.
