 Believe it or not, I was at the lighthouse beach this morning at dawn.

Unfortunately, there were too many clouds to even get a peek at the sun rising on the horizon….BUT I didn’t mind a bit after I found the ALPHABET CONE!

 I found so many live STARFISH…

 I met cutie pie Luis from Columbia (and NOT I’m talking South Carolina!) who held his very first live mollusk.

 I can’t wait for tomorrow! Negative low tides in the mornings should be more fun shelling!
