"To find a seashell is to discover a world of imagination."
~Author: Michelle Held~This was on the front of a birthday card Anne gave to Hazel - from yesterday's post. It is a photo of the photo and yes I take photos of everything. It reminded me of the days I used to stroll along the beach in my bare feet when we vacationed in Devon. This is long before we actually moved from the Midlands when Dad retired. My mum, sister and I would collect seashells and take them home with us. Then mum would find an old lamp, photo frame or vase, we covered them in some kind of 'cement' mixture, and I am really not sure what that was, and affix our seashells. We were very proud of our creations and they stayed around for years.
What a lovely evening it was. He told us a little bit about his new job. He misses his old friends but so far everything seemed pretty upbeat. His store is actually inside a shopping mall whereas before the old one stood on its own.
We used to go to this shopping mall a lot in the old days but they are building a new metro line out there, and the traffic is horrendous at the best of times. Not my cup of tea, I have enough to deal with where we live and am thankful that our little community is off the main drag and not very noisy. However, you don't have to go very far before you are in the thick of things, and I avoid rush hour if I can.
