Collecting Sea Shells

I love walking up and down the sea shore,  inhaling the fresh sea salt breeze. I hear the gentle rhythm of the waves and watch the sunset.

Sometimes I keep my eyes on the sand, letting them follow the tide line, looking for shells.  This article from Travel for Wildlife will equip you to determine whether the sea treasures you find are alive (give them back to the Gulf!) or dead (bring home as a reminder of peaceful beach days.)

(Some of the photos in the article are from Sanibal Island, just an hour and a half south of the Sleepy Sandpiper!)

  1. I loved finding shark”s teeth, especially the larger weathered ones that have seen many years gritted by sand ad smoothed by water.
