No where to root

Was at Changi beach a few days ago and decided to walk along the strandline, the line of sea debris, usually made of anything washed up the shore. Usually, this means dried fruits, rubbish, straw etc etc. Not surprisingly, I came across Cynometra ramiflora legumes again. This time there were four of them. I was thinking, great, they are pretty common, but where are they gonna take root? Very few back mangroves around now.

Also picked up other interesting stuff like the sea urchin, the fruit of a species of plant (Finlaysonis obovata) from the family Asclepiadaceae.
