Spring Shell 20220415 850_7109Spring ShellWalking on Matunuck Beach in South Kingstown, Rhode Island. The winter surf has left a paucity of shells but a few samples are found.

I walked on the beach with my sons. It combines two of my favorite things to do, spending time with the boys and walking on the beach. There is always something to explore at the beach. Our youngest, the animal maven, noticed the strange call of a different bird flitting by.

On this particular day at Matunuck Beach, it was noticeable that there was a paucity of shells. This may be due to recent shoring up of the beach after winter storms. Sand moving has been necessary due to winter storm erosion.

But when we do find shell samples, they are spectacular. Composed in sand and salt, the shell we find is that of the clam. It is fresh and clean with a little of the previous night's rain mixed in with the sand. It is the find of the day and it is glorious.
