A Guide to San Diego Sea Shells was inspired by walking on the beach and picking up shells, researching their names & discovering wondrous things about them. In San Diego it used to be that there were literally millions of tiny shells on Shell Beach in La Jolla. Over the course of 40 years all of those sea shells are completely gone due to everyone picking up the shells and taking them home. Please remember TAKE NOTHING, LEAVE NOTHING so future generations will be able to experience nature the way we once did. Thanks much.
