      I’d never seen a blue one before. The shell itself was only an inch & a half long, so I wasn’t expecting company. I was very glad he decided to pop out so I could photograph him. Thank you, Reggie. ~amy

    I feel very comforted by this sweet photo. The complimentary colours are so satisfying and the sea side story so sweet. We have no idea when we post a photo just how many levels our images might be working on. This photo reminded me of a little book I had as a girl (and still have)- The Ladybird book of the seashore.-Karen

      Its funny, Karen. When I look at the photograph, I feel as though I am seeing it through my childhood eyes. We had many trips to the beaches. Very different from the gulf beach. We usually went to Maine, Cape Cod, Nantucket or Hartford Conn. Thank you for getting the same feelings. Means we would make wonderful friends if we lived on the same part of the world. ~amy

      Yes. Had he been brown, like a cockroach, I would have tossed him back into the waves. Being blue was a different story. The shell was as big as a quarter. So he didn’t scare me too much. Thank you, Jan for your eek! ~amy

      It looks like it was taken from my childhood. I loved that he was blue in an orange shell, he couldn’t have chosen a better place to be, for me, that day. Thank you, Liana! ~amy

      He was. I thought the shell was empty, then little blue legs showed up. Thanks, Timothy! ~amy
