An Abundance of Sand Dollars

I found 15 of these just on one walk! I also found one live one, which I threw back. I think that I found so many because:

It is the end of November and there are not many other beachcombers out;
This is one of the major pluses of living on Fripp Island.

A large “river” has formed in front of the surf, and it extends down the major portion of the beach in both directions. Many people are not ready to wade through this to get to the surf zone.

We were walking southward. I think that the south end of the beach in Fripp harbors more sand dollars.

What ever combination of current and wind that produced the foam also churned up the dead sand dollars.
