Beach Treasure

Yesterday, my friend, Bev, and I went “shelling”. Yes, we are addicted; why do you ask?

We found several “sweet” pieces of sea glass as well as coral for Bev’s collection and some shells for her niece’s crafts.

But the treasure I found was this:

It’s a formation of rock and sea shells. And, oddly enough, it’s the perfect likeness of a fish. Does that make it a rock fish? (Sorry.)

Should I wish to hang it, there’s even a built-in hanger on the back.

But I think this little rock fish is going to get its own shadow box, complete with a note showing where and when it was found.

Treasures like this deserve special treatment.

  1. When you can find things like this, it turns out addiction is not such a bad thing.

  2. It looks like a small sunfish…what a delightful find.
    Grandson has claimed a treasure box here that the girls don’t want any more. He has been filling it up with special rocks.

  3. That is so perfect!!!! I am in love with it and YES—it deserves a shadow box of its very own without a doubt. You know I have never found a piece of sea glass in all my beach combing. I need to make that a priority.

  4. Serendipity!! An unexpected treasure that only you would find! LOL!

  5. Wow! Maybe it really was a fish. Maybe it is a fossil! Whatever – it is truly a treasure. And I do understand your compulsion to go shelling. I used to love to do that too.

  6. Looks interesting no matter what it is.

  8. Very very sweet! It does look like a fish, kinda like Nemo without the stripes!

  9. Looks like you are the one “hooked”!

  10. You never know what might come swmming up to shore– until you go looking ! πŸ™‚

  12. I live in the Florida Panhandle and we have beautiful beaches, but not many shells. I wish we had shells! 😦

  13. Wow! The face really looks like a fish! Good find!

  14. What a find! No wonder you’re addicted. I hope the shadow box gets a blog post. πŸ™‚

  15. That is really cool! I love beach combing!
