A couple of days ago we were out walking and looking and I was ahead of the hubster so I stopped at the edge of the water to commune with the sea. I have been waiting to be delivered of a perfect sand dollar but hadn't had any luck - lots of broken ones, but no whole ones. Well not too much longer I found my first one and then I found another. A day later I found another. I must say that when I was communing with the sea, I didn't specify the size of the perfect sand dollar, so these aren't exactly what I was expecting, but they are beautiful anyway. The largest one is about 1-1/4" in diameter.
|The hubster calls them sand nickels.|
Now, since I am expecting my fourth grandgirl this month, I just need to find one more. I am going to do some research on how to strengthen them so I can make each of my little girls a necklace.
It doesn't seem like we have been collecting many shells, but each day we bring in our finds and wash them and let them dry and then put them in a large dish that is here in the condo. It is quite a large dish and it is almost full.
I've also taken more pix of the sunset, this one through sand grasses. I like it quite a bit and can't believe how much like snow the white sand looks.
I got a quick pic of this guy "flying" by my window yesterday and thought it was a colorful picture that you might like.
We are going to Margaritaville Beach Resort later today for lunch with my sister and her husband and then who knows. Maybe I'll do some sketching. The hubster has been making really nice woodburning signs. I'll have to take some pix to share with you later in the week.
