Collecting Sea shells on Hilton Head

The beaches on Hilton Head Island had never impressed me for shell collecting until this weekend. I would never have guessed that during the beach renourishment project currently underway, the shells would be so varied and plentiful. I took over one hundred images and gathered nearly an entire plastic bag of "treasures". While on the beach, I spotted three dolphins and enjoyed numerous birds. I focused on shells with holes in them (imperfect) because they can be easily stitched to other things.

Stunning! Almost like when we were in a country called Greece and on the island called Crete. There was a beach like that. Full of shells.
