I love to walk along the beach and when I found little “treasures” like the ones in the picture it makes me even happier. I find it’s one of the rare gifts of the ocean.

When I was a child my best friend and I usually scanned the beach for shells like these, we dove as deep as we were able to if we spotted one on the bottom of the ocean. And each and every time we found one or were able to get one from under the water we felt like having found a treasure.

Besides stunning me with their amazing beauty they also remind me of the time spent over summer with my friend and whenever I find one of those shells they put a smile on my face and make me think of her…
