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.

Random Five Friday


1.) We had much-needed rain yesterday!  I could almost hear the grass and plants slurping it up as it fell.   No watering for me for a day or two.

2.) Between the rain showers, my friend, Bev, and I went beachcombing. We each have a little plastic sand bucket and a long-handled mini-rake. Sometimes we walk side-by-side, seeking treasures and chatting. Other times, one of us will walk up the beach ahead of the other. It’s a relaxing time, listening to the waves lap the shore and finding the occasional shard of sea glass or coral.

3.) I’m not sure if Bride Swan is moulting or was just a little over-zealous with her preening this week.

4.) Tuesday morning’s sunrise was photo-worthy.  Our camera was in the car, so Motor Man went to get it AND took this picture. What a guy.

5.)  He and I are once again hosting my family reunion next Saturday. So begins the frequent checking of the extended weather guess forecast.  This morning, the Weather Channel’s forecast for August 2 shows….. rain. 90%.  Not “a chance of showers” or “isolated showers”, but rain. I certainly am hoping we don’t have a rerun of last year’s reunion day weather.
