Some more visual inspiration for you. A brief look at few specimens of the shells that populate the beaches here. You have naught but to reach down and scoop up a handful of sand to find lovely little shells such as these.
My favorite finds are the partial shells that reveal their shell’s secret spirals inside.
And a final picture with my little photography helper. She was really excited about the shells, too. Of course, her primary interest was in seeing how many she could fit in her mouth. Ha. Bad mami.
