Late last month, as I was walking along the beach, I found several beautiful seashells along the high tide line. There was a small moon snail (on the right in the photo below), a colorful scallop (bottom), and a slightly faded but unbroken scotch bonnet (top, left).
The scotch bonnet is the official state seashell of North Carolina, and always a fun shell to find.
