Treasure hunting

The storms from a month ago might have washed out some of our beaches, but they also left lots and lots of treasures!   Here are a few finds from a recent beach walk.  *note: the onion skin was however not found on the beach... but it was part of our day of discoveries & beauty.  Our day of treasure hunting was finished with a patio dinner + cheese (on our found beach stone plates) + candlelight = one of my favorites things to do!!










Delightful.
