Oregon Sand Dollars August 12 2013, 0 Comments

Simple things make me happy - walks on the beach are one of those things. While on vacation this summer (see prior blog posts) we had a chance to enjoy California and Oregon beaches. The beach in Tolovana Park was full of silky sand, picturesque haystacks, tidal pools, but hardly any shells.  What they had was plenty of sand dollars. Although strong waves seemed to destroy them, and most of we could find were pieces, my husband found an almost perfect, with hardly any chips, sand dollar.  Here they all are, gracing my coffee table, a piece of the beach.  Too delicate to work into jewelry, but a joy to the eye.
