Sea Shells   Leave a comment

Dear BJ,

I saw a teacher on my walk today.

She was picking up shells by a small tide pool at about 14th Avenue South.

She wore a big floppy straw sun hat and a subdued  floral one piece bathing suit.

Straw Beach hat

She had a red mesh bag about half filled with various shells.

When I asked her if there were any treasures left for the rest of us.  She replied, in a soft up country accent,  “I always take some smooth stones home from my vacation to share with my students next year.”

I could tell that she is a really good person and a great teacher.

Your Sincerely,
