I lived many years as a child pretty close to the ocean and we went quite often.
I learned to swim very early and have always loved it. I have not been to the beach in a couple of years now and truly miss it. Haven't been swimming either.
I found this shell at an antique shop the other day and went ahead and purchased it since I can't go to the beach and find them myself. It was six dollars which really wasn't bad and it has so much character. I love the coloration inside and the pits and barnacles on the outside.
I had this stack of books already on my coffee table and then realized the shell was kind of picking up the theme on the cover. I added my dried seaweed alongside.
Thought I would share these before summer ends. At least I can dream about the beach.
Take time today to listen.
