The shells were everywhere, razor clam, mussel, oyster, and many I didn't recognize. We had not seen many shells on our visits to the beaches on the north shore of Prince Edward Island this year. However, the beach in Cascumpec Harbour in Northport, had shells. The most interesting ones were the moon snail shells,
to reveal the beauty of the spiral
which is hidden when the shell is intact.
In their broken beauty,
they were an inspiration there on the red sand.
They were not perfect
but their imperfections
made each unique and special in its own way.
The sacred spiral of the divine!
I love them all, Marie. Thank you so much for the inspiration. :-)
shells are so interesting. I prefer not to think of the creepy crawlings that used to inhabit them. ;)
I find the sea tumbled stones beautiful, too.
So many shapes and textures with the beautiful red sand in the background.
My father once cut a very thin sliver from a similar shell. One of my brothers has it, and I am awed at its beauty. There is so much magic in the little things.
Such beautiful shells, delicate color inside and wonderful shapes.
I love them too, Jan.
You're welcome, Mage.
SW, the creatures can be off-putting. The shells are gorgeous.
Yes they are. This is the first beach we've seen here with a large number of stones on it.
That sand certainly highlights the shells!
How true, EC. The little things are magic!
Beauty of colour and form, Celia!
That does look like a treat of a time.
Imperfections are what make them beautiful and unique...As in humans !
It was great!
My thought exactly, Ginnie!
I love shells. When you see them broken like that you wonder about the turbulent trip they made from ocean to shore.
But for the efforts of our ancestors in the 1930s, there would be no geese and ducks. Today we must keep up the good fight.
Imperfections highlight beauty. A small "beauty mark" on an otherwise perfect face makes you notice the beauty even more.
Yes you do, Barbara. It must have been rough.
We must! They are incredible creatures.
They do hightlight beauty as you say.
divine display of nature loved them
It is a wondrous display, baili!
That first one is killer nice to look at.
