Shelling has slowed down quite a bit the last couple of days, but there is always something different to try. My Dad loved to dig, he would carefully look for a place that appeared to have buried pen shells, and he would sit right down, in the tidal pool or along the shoreline and dig. He would stay there for hours, and many times would go back to the same spot many days in a row. It usually paid off for him too.
I thought about him today as I was doing a little bit of digging around the pen shells in the tidal pool.Most things in the tidal pool were live, like this BEAUTIFUL True Tulip, so I walked along the shoreline.
Sure enough, I walked on down the beach and found an area that looked like it might prove interesting....Do you see it? <You can click on the pic to make it larger>
The trick is, you have to get it between waves because the tide was coming in. Sometimes you'll miss some things as the waves pull them out and take them back into the gulf.
I found this pretty petite alphabet cone that way too!
Not too bad, Huh? I think Daddy would be pretty proud!! :)Love the spines on this jewel-box pair!
