COQUINAS are so very special. These small clams appear in myriad rainbow
colors and patterns...even a "sun ray plaid!" At times there are only a few -- but such a joy when the
receding surf reveals millions in a range of sizes and colors from deep purple or blue, brilliant red or yellow
to pastel. They appear and then suddenly switch to a vertical position and dig in the sand, only to surface again
with the next wash and collect densely in little swash channels, and in your freshly made footprints.
RED MANGROVE is referred to as the tree that "walks." It reaches
out with "prop roots" which give it firm support along the shore to withstand the tide and wave actions.
Sand accrues in and amongst the extensive root system which helps prevent shoreline erosion. "Walking Tree,
Inc." representatives for Hal Stowers is named after, and pays tribute to, the beloved "Red Mangrove."
Over the years all of Hal & B.J.'s boats have been named "Mangrove Momma."
