She sells sea shells

I have both memories and fantasies of summer beach combing. Unfortunately, summer here has been a bit of a drag, weather wise, AND we are miles away from the seaside. So to quell some of my landlocked summer doldrums, I thought I would share some of my seashell collection, from trips and travels past.

Moon snails from Salt Spring Island sea kayaking trip

Cones and augers

Assorted snails and periwinkles


Scallops - most from a childhood trip to Australia

Various coral bits and beach glass

Crab claws, BC West Coast

Conchs and murex, a couple are from tropical destinations, others from BC

Perfectly polished beach pebbles from Nova Scotia.
