Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ~Leo Buscaglia

Beachcombing Finds

I've always loved beachcombing, but it's sea bean "season" now in my neck of the woods and I'm determined to make up for how lax I've been about searching for these treasures the last few years.  These are pics of some of my recent finds.

In the top photo are a pile of coin vine pods (top left); sea coconuts aka golfballs (top right); sea glass and a "sea hero" (bottom left); shark's eyes, white mangrove, and seagrapes (middle); tropical almonds, hog plums, and a couple I have yet to positively identify.

In the bottom photo (clockwise) are sea coconuts aka golfballs, a penshell with striped acorn barnacles, crabwood, hamburger beans (1 brown and 1 red), blister pods, sea coconut in husk, starnut palm, and one I have not yet positively identified.
