What to call me? Pucker Up? Whistling in the Dark?Earthball

30A - Seagrove 4

On December 24, 2010, many earthballs similar to Pucker Up (photo above) appeared in Seagrove. Phenomenal was the appearance of twin earthballs, each at least three inches in diameter. The next week, on January 1, 2011, three more pairs of earthballs appeared on the same bank. I'm not sure I saw all of them hidden by the grasses. I call them by name to keep track of them as they are usually relatively long-lived. Meet Opener, Glasses, and Singers. On Jan 7, 14, 21, and 28 all the twin earthballs were alive and well.
