King Neptune must have lots of fun seeing our jaws drop when he pulls the tide out and lets us peek at all the living creatures on the sea bed during a full moon.
I can just see Mother Nature giggling at him then scattering a few empty treasures on the shore and coloring the sky to play along in the Neptune’s beach drama game.
Clark was happy to play along to collect her shell loot.
Chris and Jamie (MO) were there to witness the fun of King Neptune and Mother Nature.
They sounded just like Clark and me when we “co-mingle” our shells and then try to claim the ones we “know” we found. “No, I found that one!”- “No, you didn’t, I found that ALPHABET CONE”. hahaha Well whoever found it, it’s going to the same house so all is good.
Jason along with his kids Grayson, Katelyn, Leah and Gavin were at Lighthouse beach to see the amazement of all of the live FIGHTING CONCHS. They all found empty shells as well to take home to Jacksonville to have fun identifying later.
Oh my… and the BEACH BLING. Such cool bling like MUREX EGG CASE (back), MERMAID PURSES (SKATE EGG CASES), CORAL, SEA WHIPS, URCHINS, STRIATE PIDDOCKS drilling holes in DRIFT WOOD and a black ROUGH SCALLOP.
And there’s one more egg case we can’t quite positively identify… anybody know?
My fave thing the whole weekend was this little tiny heart drilled in a PEN SHELL. I don’t know why… it just made me incredibly happy to discover it when there was so much obvious beauty surrounding me.
It made me feel like a kid.
