Burl and I fill our pockets with sand, shells, and rocks when we come home from the beach. We have a big bowl where we collect shells, and play with them at home. This collection is from our beach visit a few days ago.
When I was little, I absolutely loved seals and once found a piece of drift wood shaped just like a harbor seal. I kept it for many years, but over time it became lost. I still look for pieces of drift wood to replace it. Hopefully someday.
