If they were not so fragile, these Sand Dollars would make beautiful jewelry. But I guess it is good for me to take things as they are and not turn Everything into something to wear on the body.
This is my total haul. Plenty of Shells. Mostly Rocks. A pocket size amount of Sea Glass. 5 (or 3) Sand Dollars. A few cool pieces of Driftwood. And a rusty washer. I wonder if I am really meant to be with just the Rocks. Or maybe I need to just not think about it and just use what comes my way. I had my heart set on Sea Glass when I left my house and drove down to the shore. But I came home with some really beautiful bits and pieces, so No Disappointment Here.
I was at Monmouth Beach NJ. We took a few loops though Sea Bright. Sandy Hook is still closed from Hurricane Sandy. Sea Bright has 20 or so businesses boarded up, with maybe 2 that look like they are in the process of rebuilding. Monmouth Beach was hit hard too. Countless homes in the area sit vacant and boarded up. It made it difficult to completely relax and wander the beach on that beautiful sunny Sunday, knowing there was so much devastation just up the beach, on Ocean Avenue and beyond.
