EDM Challenge #63 Draw what you find on a 'nature walk.'
'Nature walk" -
I don't think I hear that term very often in Australia. Anyway, here are some things I collected round the bluff from Pebbly Beach. I could have picked up millions of sea urchin spines - the 'sand' seemed to be composed mainly of them and lots were unbroken. I love the black and white shells - three different varieties, I found when I looked them up. And some false limpets - how do they find their way back to their personalised dimple when they've tired of wandering?

This is wonderful, I don't know how I missed this one. The surf is so rough on our beaches here in Northern California that the shells usually get pulverized on their way to shore. Love your work!

What a fascinating collection. You make me want to go beachcombing here in So. Cal.
