We went to the beach today.
I'm not usually a beach person. I can't swim so the water scares me. Watching my boys get in the water (under the protection of their father) scares me, and I always leave burned.
But I do like look for shells.
I never find any pretty ones at our beach though. Just broken up and cracked ones.
Today I found a really pretty one, and got all excited.
See how pretty it is? And it was whole, and shiny and unbroken.
There was just one problem...
Somebody was still living in it. I'm not sure what kind of critter it is, but it was quite wiggly.
So I put it in my sons hand and told him to put it back in the waves.
Then I saw this large shell.
A hermit crab house.
There was nobody home in that one.
