I have been sick this week and have made a dent in the sofa where I have been sitting down so much. I'm starting to feel better so took the opportunity this morning to go for a walk on the beach. I went early to avoid any crowds, the tide was out so it had a great salty sea smell. The mud isn't the most picturesque view but with the tide out I was able to find the most gorgeous shells, they look like oysters or maybe they're mussels - I'm not sure? Anyway, I filled my pockets and brought them home, I think they look so lovely all lined up.
