Hunting for seashells

Happy Thursday guys! I can’t believe tomorrow is Friday already, where did the week go? Time seems to be flying by and I’m just trying to hold on and get all my stuff done.  The days don’t seem long enough anymore, but Spring seems to be right around the corner the sun is coming up earlier and setting later.  Winter has not stopped me from eating delicious frozen treats, all I’ve wanted to eat lately has been ice cream and milkshakes, but being the insane health freak I am I’ve been coming up with way yummier and so much better for you desserts.  I’m excited to share them with you guys, but that’s for another post.

On the weekends when we are stuck for something to do we usually end up walking to the bottom of our insanely steep hill to the beach.  I’ve been wanting to go get some broken seashells, but we always end up forgetting about it, or the fact that we’ve been avoiding going to the promenade, after seeing a naked man posing for photos, kids blowing up condoms like balloons and a dead seal.  To say we’ve been slightly traumatised would be an understatement, but this last time it was pure bliss.  Everyone seemed so happy playing pokemon go, riding bicycles and having picnics.

^^ Exploring rocks, finding the perfect seashells, we do dating differently from everyone else it seems.

^^ A whole lot of shells.  I felt so bad walking around on these.  I felt like I was destroying the secondhand housing section.

^^ Nature is full of beauty and treasures.

    It’s amazing how different beaches have different shells, and how some don’t have any. I was hard pressed to find a single one in California, and the shells here on Virginia’s beaches are far less pretty (and far more rare) than the shells once you get as far south as Georgia.

      Yeah, its so strange! I never saw any sea glass in South Africa ( just broken fresh bottle glass) and in Ireland the beaches had the most amazing sea glass and pebbles around.

    I love sea shell collecting and sea glass collecting. I also wish it was winter but I’m in the middle of a hot and humid north east summer. Don’t worry though I’m counting the days until fall 🙂 Lovely photos!!
