Shell fragments

Even year our family goes to Sanibel Island for a few weeks to enjoy the Gulf and the laid-back Island style. The beaches of Sanibel are known for their shells, which are plentiful - especially after a storm. These fragments came from the bay side of the island where they have lived and aggregated for years, becoming concrete-like and quite heavy. The surface having worn smooth, they are pleasant to hold and to rub your fingers along.
