ONCE IN A BLUE MOON – SHELL! Lovely shells on the beach during a minus tide. Photographing shells is such a wonderful way to “collect” them. I placed a Limpet shell “pearl” inside an open Mussel shell. I carry this beauty in my heart.
Just delivered a shipment of “A Guide to San Diego Sea Shells” to the Birch Aquarium. Such a lovely aquarium with an emphasis on education to children. Look for my book in the Research section! https://aquarium.ucsd.edu/
“She showed me on the sand small broken bits of marine matter, driftwood, seaweed, stones, sea birds’ feathers & like black crosses, cormorants clinging to the rocks…along the coast all afternoon, sun & fog waged war. …I took off my shoes beside the fire, sand spilled from them & soon I was falling fast asleep.” — Pablo Neruda
