Tumbleweeds down at the Shore!

Recently at the beach, I noticed a lot of seaweed and debris down along the Ocean Avenue Walkway shoreline of Cape May Point: 

Perhaps, this is connected to the $8 million dredging project to restore and build up the Cape May beaches that started in December off the coast

or from strong winter storms or both. 

The area looks swept by water and wind, leaving behind along the shore 
many tumbleweeds - 
weeds as in 

The balls are a mixture of seaweed, grasses, and debris.

There must be some tasty treats inside, too, as the birds pick them apart, apparent
by the many footprints.
