Life's a Beach Sometimes

I walked the beach
The tide was way out
I was able to take a few photos
Sand dollars galore
Every shape
Broken and not
Lined up under the sand
Laying on top of each other
Scallops and sea weed
Oysters and mussels
It's way too much fun

Oh wow, I've never seen sand dollars before! Neat, now I can look for them!

Oh, how fun that must have been. I love walking on the beach looking for "treasures". You certainly found some. :-)

Our beach place is on an inlet. Looks like a lake when the tide is in. We have a six foot bulkhead. When the tide is way way out, I can find beds of sand dollars. They line up in rows on top of each other.

You couldn't find that at the Ocean ... I never did.

I walk the shoreline looking for small sand dollars and parts of what I call ... Nautilus ... shells. The kind tha are curled up ... I'll take a few pics to show you what I mean.

The photos taken were on my property.

I forgot to tell the lucky winners ~ I'm going to add a few sand dollars to their gift baskets.

Love! My sister goes to Pismo Beach every summer and brings back a bunch. She decorates her bathroom with them, she has a beach theme going obviously.

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
