It truly felt like summer today. I took my daughter to our beach early this morning and spent a good hour combing the warm sand for precious shells. Once the beaches open to the public the shells are trampled upon and finding them whole is a rarity. We both had two full bags of jewels and once we got home we bleached them in hot water before setting them in the copper basin in our garden to sun bleach. What a wonderful day. Simplicity at it's best.
