I Love to Gather Shells At the Beach

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 246 People

    The randomness of finding shells on the beach

    adds to the use of them in my seithr, and I am diligent in first cleaning each one of the sea's touch, carefully removing dirt and other chemical residues. I then wish them in clean water, gathered from a stream a little way from the house in Stavanger, and I lay them out to...

    Put Them To Good Use

    I don't live anywhere near an ocean, but even when I go on vacation I can't sit still, so when everyone else is sun-bathing I collect shells. When I proposed to my wife I hid the ring in a pirate's chest that I made out of old weathered wood and decorated with sea shells from...

    Early Meanderings

    Ever since I was quite small I have collected shells from the beach. I think I must have over a thousand shells now, which are in a small chest in my bedroom. I mean to create something from them sometime. I thought about using them to top flower and plant pots.

    I found a bag of sea shells in an arts

    and crafts tote in the closet today. I dumped them all out and I felt content inhaling the scent of the salty ocean on the shells. My hands smelled like it for quite a while, and when it went away I was sad. I long to go to the ocean right about now. You see, this year in Maine...

    Early Morning Bliss

    I love to get up, slip into some comfy shoes, and go walking on the beach before others start stirring.  I especially love picking up different shells imagining what it must have been like under the sea.  I soon lose myself,  imagining mermaids and other nythical...

    Relaxing

    I've only gathered shells at the beach just once, and it was by myself. Sometimes I wish I had that special someone to gather shells with.

    I Love Collecting Beautiful Rocks And Shells Along The Beach.

    Depending on whether you're a glass half empty or glass half full kind of person: you could say I'm fortunate enough to get to go to the beach once a year, or UNFORTUNATELY I ONLY get to go once a year! I think I must be a glass half empty kind of gal, cause every day that I'm...
