    • Thanks for commenting. You and I like a lot of the same things. As I was cleaning out a cupboard on the farm yesterday I came across a box full of shells which I had collected over the years, there were many memories there, still twenty years later I could see my granddaughter bringing back to me those shells and the smile on her face as she handed them to me. Memories what would we do as we grow older if we didn’t have those special moments, they can make a perfect day.

      • Awww what sweet memories. 🙂 One memory of the beach that I have is of our youngest son squatting down on the rocks. I’m not sure what he was looking at or pondering, but we captured that photograph. It is on my seashells post beside his Marine photograph.
        I am glad that we can have these memory-making moments with our children and we can draw on them as we get older and they are off living their own lives. Precious memories.
        Have a blessed day. 🙂
