Purple Sponge Encrusting Seaweed


Pale purple sponge encrusting some seaweed that washed up on the beach. It was the only sponge and the only seaweed I found here, so I'm thinking that maybe the sponge made the seaweed more buoyant so it could wash ashore.


It was halfway up the shoreline of this beach made up of mostly empty oyster shells and lime rock near lots of mangroves
