I’m an avid beachcomber, and the sea delivers the most exquisite of treasure from shells, glass shards and even the odd Spanish coin.

Thanks for the reblog, Yassmin 🙂
I always enjoy beach treasures. I take them home and it reminds me of the time I spent happily finding it.
Lovely, that’s the way to trigger those good memories. I still look out for the treasures of my childhood – the periwinkels and alikreukel operculums – those pincushion like trapdoors; and love to put a shell to my ear to hear the sea!
True treasures!!! Most beach walkers don’t look … 😉 Had a long beach walk with the local hiking club recently and I made quite a few pictures which I published on their facebook page. After that some of them did the hike again ….
Don’t we have some pretty amazing beaches, and some along treacherous stretches of coastline… all those shipwrecks etc. One of my aunt’s has a treasure trove of trade beads, copper nails, ships artefacts from the days when she was young beachcombing in the vicinity of one of the Portuguese East Indiamen that struck a reef. Lots of history out there..
Yes we do have amazing beaches. Always prefer to go to the less known ones!!! 😉
Nicely done. Love the glass shard image.
Thought seriously about a similar post but went a different way. Love this one!
Thanks Tina; yours certainly gives food for thought 🙂
I’d say that sand dollar, with the wonderful pattern impressed on it, is worth more than a dollar.
Yes, tha’s true Steve, especially as shells become rare items 🙂
I like beach combing too! But never thought of making post on it. Real treasure is in the experience itself!!
I like that Avinash, the treasure of the experience 🙂 Thanks for stopping by.
