Night Time Seashell Sorting





My niece was over last night. It was a hot balmy night and the girls had been swimming all day. They were fussing over my shell collection. On closer observation I found them actually trying to sort out the different species of shells into groups from a vintage seashell book I have. I had to capture the adventure to share with you all.

  5. Love all the photos... I wish I could find unusual seashells...our waters are rough and the shells that are whole aren't too prevalent...the girls look like they are sharing secrets.

  8. It keeps throwing me off when you talk about hot and swimming. Texas here and cold and nothing green. What a sweet picture of the girls. Wish I could be seashell sorting. Lori
