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.
