25 Mar Shelling on the Flats
On the evening of the fullest moon in 18 years, I found myself looking for seashells on a lone sandbar. My client was a retired teacher from the great state of Nebraska with her sister Mary. Many live shells were observed. Many non-living shells were collected including rose tellins, sunray venus, one beautiful horse conch, a razor clam along with other special shells. The trip was very satisfying for the teacher from Nebraska who was an avid shell collector. The moon was pleasing to the eye as I pointed the bow of the boat into the the moon beams on the water. Thoughts of past moons flooded my memories like a broken down dam.
