The first pocket was unusually close to our house and cove, in the past we walk probably four blocks distance before we find any shells. These starfish were within two blocks of the house.
It went on like this almost the entire length of the beach, one mile. At first we were picking them all up, but when we got them home some were just too beat up to keep, here's half our final haul.
Many other treasures were found as well, it was a really good beach combing day.
When we got home, I made us smoothies and then we got busy, painting and puttering, by the end of the afternoon, we had some great new decorations.
Some of our painted bottles worked, some didn't. We have since looked up the recipe for Mod Podge, and will try painting the bottles again.
Puppies, always want to be where the action is...
