Thirty - Collecting Shells

Early yesterday morning I went for a delightful stroll down but Burns Beach with some friends before the day had a chance to become horribly hot and humid. It really is a great way to start the day, there's something about that fresh coastal air that just makes me happy.  While most of the walk was on pathways, we did venture down to the sand for a bit of shell collecting - there seem to be more variety (and lots of crab holes!) down on the beach here than there is on my usual at Mullalloo... Funny to think how lovely and sunny it was just yesterday while as I type I'm sitting listening to rain on my roof and massive thunder in the sky (is it weird that the thunder gave an urge to watch one of the Thor movies?)!

  4. Such a pretty macro! You have reminded me of how hot and humid it gets here in the summer too and I am not looking forward to it one bit.

  7. Amazing. We are both on a macro shell kick today. Such pretty colours on the inside of the shell in the first macro. And yes. We have had some rain and no summer warmth for several days at all on my peninsula.

  9. Collecting shells can be great fun. We used to visit Sanibel Island off the west coast of S. Florida and the shells there were wonderful. Also, on Venice Beach, but we got ancient shark's teeth than shells there.

  10. You are so right about that magic of the fresh salt sea air. Nice stroll indeed!
