I found my very first sand dollar. Well it was a half of a sand dollar but it is the first I ever found.
I was so excited about this.
There were loads of little pieces of beach glass, and many unusual shells.
I love the peaceful sound of shells clinking together as they get washed up on the beach.
I was thinking these will look pretty in my antique Ball Mason jar on my newly re-done, re-purposed Beachy hutch- that used to be a black laminate spacecrafty looking thing! ( which you can read about here)
So for 2 hours I gathered seashells by the seashore!
My son and his girl Erika, even had to pick some up.
The sand dollar is about 2 inches long, the large shell next to it is about a bit more than 4 inches.
and you can see from the plastic bag that I bought I got a lot of pretty purple scallop shells!
Some had perfectly tiny little holes in them just right for a slip of a silver necklace!
Wonderful gifts from the sea.
To adorn ourselves and our houses.
Memories from a fabulous day on the beach, after a storm, on Manasota Key,
when the waves are still raging, and challenging.
Simple Seashells in a jar.
My Mason full of Memories.
