treasures of the sea???

It all depends on how you look at things, what you see…right?   I’m sure many see these as nothing of importance or worthy of a second look.   To me these are interesting finds…especially the beautiful empty intact shell!  Just look at the Nacre, or Mother of Pearl as it is known in the jewelry world… it is smooth, an even color, without damage.  For those who aren’t familiar, Nacre is the white inner lining of the shell, the outer layer of pearls is also Nacre.   This would make a beautiful piece of jewelry if you were into making something from raw materials such as this…

As you may know I was away for a couple of weeks, we were most fortunate to have missed the two coldest weeks so far this winter!!!   Didn’t take my laptop so I couldn’t keep up with  posting and visiting.   This year my daughter and I went to Marco Island.  I stayed there for a week last year in a house and enjoyed it so thought I’d try it again.   This time we decided to go for a condo on South Marco Beach, with a west exposure.   As a result the majority of my photos will be from that area…of course we went out,  but for the most part when we did I forgot my camera, as we were going shopping, to the Market or to eat!   If you’ve never been, the beach itself is a beauty, fairly wide, with most of the surface compact broken shells with some fine sand mixed in,  the waters edge is small shells, some live some not.  I enjoyed myself watching theses fellows moving along across the shells.   Shoes are required when walking along the beach unless you are right at the waters edge…shell.movining.2a.104
