Obviously it wasn't on the beach where I was last. I think this requires some first hand sleuthing. :)
I'm back with my take on this whole Kraut thing. :) There is NO WAY it would keep me from going to the beach to do whatever I wanted to do. So, if you are here on the island or coming soon, it isn't a big deal for now.
First of all the Sauerkraut was only in a small area of beach. I went onto the beach at Pointe Santo on West Gulf Drive. There was some there and further east, as far as I could see. But, friends told me that there was none, a little further east and none on the east end of the island.
Someone with artistic talent had left behind
some cute sand art.
Who would have thought of finding
a turkey on the beach?
After spending a little time there, admiring the sand art, we drove to the end of West Gulf Drive. I walked out access 7. There was a small amount of the Sauerkraut there, but most of what I saw was red drift algae. I didn't pick up any shells in either location, although there were some smaller things. The tide was out and there were tidal pools that looked like fun to walk through, searching for shells, but I had obligations and didn't stay long.
The temperature was in the mid 70's, a strong breeze blowing, and there was absolutely nothing wrong with this view! :) I love this place!
