|The sun is trying to peak out|
The rain and stormy water did the usual wearing down of the sand wall at Stump Pass. Not to worry because it always rebuilds itself sooner or later.I was in the water sifting with my shovel but the surf was just so rough I was getting beat up. As I was taking a breather from the water I looked a little closer at the sand wall. I started seeing teeth everywhere.
A blogger friend Pam from i Love Shelling.com says you have to train your eyes to look for teeth and not shells. That's really true.

|I walked the wall for an hour|

|Thanks for the warning!|
|Not bad for an hour|
|Not in the best shape but it's a big one|

|And they are pink even better.|
|Pookie loves coca cola. Her grandma has a collection.|
|Disregard the crazy eyes and look at the ice bucket with SHARK'S TEETH! Tervis will customize all their products.|
|The sky is gorgeous to the west over the beach|
|Stay of course. It sprinkled a little but no lightening or thunder. Check out Barney in the middle of the clouds.|
The only thing I like better than walking the beach for shells, shark's teeth, & whatever else happens to wash up is going to thrift stores. I like the consignment shops & discount stores but give me a little junky storefront crammed full of who-knows-what to dig through and I'm a happy camper.
I like shelling especially when my head is in bad space. There is just something about focusing on the treasure hunt that makes me forget I just had a stressful day. Well, if I can't make it to the beach my thrift store route is the next best thing.And look what I found today sitting up on a top shelf. Isn't this napkin holder a beauty?
Someone took the time to make sure all the coquinas were the same size and all lined up. I can tell they chose the best of all there little mini's for the accents in the center. All that work to hold paper napkins.
