Sea Shore Treasures

When people are walking on the beach, most of them have a handful of tiny sea shells and will look so diligently for the perfect one to pick up and keep. I always wonder what they do with them or what particular shape and kind they are actually looking for.

I love finding things on the beach too, but I'm not that hard of a "looker". I usually have to stumble on something to see it. We go to the beach quite often since we only live 4 hours away and have a camper.
Here are a few things found while me and family have took our daily walks on the beach. Enjoy.

 We found blackberries on the sand dunes.
I'm sure they don't tastes as good as the ones in my area.

 I have found a total of about 15 sand dollars.
 Makes me feel rich. ha ha.

 We found this in a tide pool.
When I picked it up, it had a creature inside and it spit water on me
so I put it down, snapped a picture, and left it alone.

 Bottle washed up on the beach.
There was nothing in it except for maybe memories of someones crazy night  before. haha.

Now this was found on our walk far away from where people are. We took it in and opened it up. We could tell it was not old. It contained several little hand written letters of what
appeared to be from children that lost their mom in a tragic accident
and one note asked if anyone found this bottle to please put it back to sea.
So, later that night, my husband tossed it back out to sea as far as he could throw.

We have found other things but I didn't have my camera with me. Like the time my husband found a live starfish. And we had a sand crab come up from a hole between our beach chairs once and spent the day with us in the sun. yuk, and the Jelly fish.  I could go on but without pictures, its no fun.

What are some interesting things you have found on the shore? And if anyone knows what people are really looking for out there, please share it. 


  1. I look for shells, round flat stones and sea glass. Walking the beach is pure heaven on earth.

    1. Sea glass.....Thats something new I had heard about a while back and I look for that too. So far I have only found one tiny piece of it.

  2. That bottle is so cool! I like pretty shells but you don't tend to find much on Brighton beach!

  3. along the nc coast, as we walked the beach one night a friend introduced us to what looks like a clump of seaweed but when we started to move it around it actually illuminated (bioluminescence). a couple of years later, we made a trip to jamaica where a boat would take you out into the waters and everywhere we swam the water around us illuminated (bioluminescence).
