Living Room Beach Trip???

Since Tropical Storm Fay postponed our trip to the beach, we decided to do a little conchology(study of shells) in the living room. It looks like sand doesn't it? We just finished the chapter in our Apology book on Mollusks and needed some reinforcement. We needed to add to our ocean box also. So, the kids spread out all of our shells on the floor and picke out their favorites. They found all kinds of bivalves, a Moon Snail shell, a Cowry, a Wentletrap, some Slipper Shells and a limpet to name a few. If we ever get to go to the beach, maybe we can add to this.

How fun! We have a small collection, but I bought it at a garage sale. We are hoping to see the ocean next Summer. I have only seen it once and the kids haven't at all. It is good to hear Bobbi's arm is healing nicely. I am sure even getting part of the cast off was a relief. I like the orange. Good Fall color ;p

Wow…. A big collection of findings from your beach trip. They are just like sweet memories, I too have some of them through my California trip, this trip I got organised through Marriott & it was awesome.
