Smittie the kitty with shells

Happiness is being surrounded by what you love…. the seashore, seashells, art, wildlife, sealife and of course friends and family. There are times when life gets tough when you lose one of them. Clark and I lost our pretty Smittie the kittie this week so our world has been tilted. We don’t have 2 legged children, our children are furry with four legs. She was part of our family and we loved our sweet girl beyond words.

I’m sorry, I know this post isn’t about shelling but I introduced Smittie to you several years ago so I felt you might remember. Now you know why I haven’t been out on the beaches giving you up-to-date shelling info on the islands this week.  But we will be back on the beaches this weekend to get back into our groove … and giving lots of love to our little fluff ball Dustie.

Happiness is also gathering 25 awesome shellers and spending 4 days on a great shelling adventure together sharing stories and friendships. Announcing Shellabaloo 4 January 6-9, 2014 this week came at a perfect time to make for happiness again. Join us for lots of happy shelling! For more info CLICK HERE …
