Take a Word - Seashells

One of my most pleasant memories is that of collecting seashells on a family vacation in Fort Meyers Beach, Florida.   I put my treasures in the sun on the steps outside our unit.  One of the shells kept getting moved.  It took a day or two before I discovered I'd inadvertently collected a shell that was home to a hermit crab!   We still laugh about my "walking shell" !!  I hope this challenge conjured up pleasant memories for each of you!   See my blog for credits.   ....   Bev
