Happy New Year

Well, 2010 is here and what better way to enjoy the day then to take a walk on the beach.

I treasure the times I can listen to the pulse of the surf and let my mind free to think about the great blessings we have in Christ and to enjoy the beauty of God's creation.

This scarecrow must have stayed up till midnight waiting on the New Year.

You never know what you may find in the quest for beans on the beach. This snake skeleton made an interesting sight in the sand.

A single blade of cord grass whipped out this trench as the wind tickled it across the sand.


Even this little bird was dragging his toes as he made his way home.



This mermaid's purse was half buried.




I found several cool beans this day including a Mary's bean, two hearts, some burgers and palms, and an antidote vine seed. Also, I picked up some shells and coral and one coconut to add to the collection at the nature center.






Here are the non-bean treasures.

Love all your pictures on sea beans!
I started collecting sea beans this past winter while in Florida. Brought all my treasures home and would love to make a necklace as you did. (BTW...great idea about selling your items for an educational fund!) My question is: how do you drill the holes in the beans...and any other information worth sharing.
Thanks!

Great weekend!!! My husband and I have collecting for 2 months and have over 1500 drift seeds so far. We are in Galveston county and found over 400 last weekend also. I am so addicted!! Also have found some fossil teeth and bones of bison.
