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.
