There were all sorts of tracks in the sand where I left the prints of my boots. Often, I stopped to take photos as evidence of who had been walking the shoreline ahead of me.
There were scads of deer tracks (below) and at least one bear prowling the shoreline (above).
This track puzzled me for awhile until I saw a crayfish walking the sand leaving these marks behind.
An occasional hoof print where people had ridden in the surf and sand.
There were raccoon tracks, especially near streams.
And, of course, many types of birds left their marks as they wandered the shore.
