My guess is that it was probably made in China, some kid bought it at a gift shop and then accidentally dropped it there.Your Welcome!m.
It's all part of your journey too, Mark! I forgot to check the bottom!!!!lol
Mark is such a buzz kill. Lol.
Thank goodness we all have our own 'buzz'!!! lol
I wonder what the journey was also : ) I will think on it today. I love the new picture in your header. You blow me away : ) XO
Hey Becky! Look at you! Don't think too hard on it now.........the new 'header' was 'being there at the right time' thing......you know ALL about that one.
Ah - so very thoughtful and beautiful.
Fiona, thanks. It seemed so alone on this huge beach. We usually see bits and pieces of these around the beach but this one was intact and untouched.
Did you stage that shot? The beauty is in its simplicity. Mother Nature is one heck of an artist. :)
Staging? Moi! Actually no, I didn't touch it at all Lisa. I was walking by, looked down, and there it was! There wasn't much 'traffic' on the beach as it was brisk, so it was still as intact as it was when 'it arrived' on that spot.Yes, Mother Nature is the BEST! She made us didn't she! lol
It's probably wondering the same thing about you.
LOL! Well actually Debra I believe it is no longer thinking of anything much any more, as I suspect it was dead. But I do appreciate where you were going and am sure if it was alive, it saw this GIANT peering down at it and terrified!!!
Beautiful. I love sand dollars.
This looked to be in pristine shape Pat and nobody had touched it....so a perfect opportunity for 'us' photogs'!
You sure have a good "eye" there, Jim!I don't know where that sand dollar was born, so I couldn't even guess at it's journey. I suppose it was kind of like ours, good days and bad days...
Thanks Sharon! You are so observant! But I knew that! Here's 'looking at ya'!Do you think they may have bad days? Can't imagine!
It may in one day travel to Malaysia.I'll tell you about it by then.
LOL! Now that would be a 'world's record' if I ever saw one!!! I could have 'marked' this one, just in case!
My memories flashed on the beautiful beaches in San Diego, where I lived for two years. I don't think I ever saw such a perfect sand dollar though. And now I wonder too what its story may be.
Well to start, you may want to check out wikipedia about 'sand dollars'. Were the ones on the west coast different from this type we have Inger?
Oh, how wonderful. I used to find these all the times on the beaches north of Boston. Haven't seen on in years.
They (this specific kind) must be only in the northeast then, don't you think? I am here for you Mitch!.....to keep you in touch with your 'roots'! lol
never seen one.. amazing....now jim... I am going to set you a frivolous blog challengeyour 10 fav movies and whyI would be interested to know
Maybe they are indigenous to specific areas only in the world and Wales isn't one of those.Now for your challenge John. I accept of course since I feel compelled to satiate your curiosity but be forewarned that I am very picky about movies and books.Nice that you think I could be frivolous John....I do have that side which doesn't surface often.....if you didn't already surmise that! lol
and Ron's too!
That would be up to him.
I've only seen them in gift shops--It does make you wonder about the journey and now where is it headed? Did you pick it up to keep or send it back to where it came from?
I didn't touch it at all Kim. If it was alive, which I suspect it wasn't, the tide would 'take it out' as it had 'brought it in'. I really don't know how long they survive out of water. Anyone know?
You are seriously making me miss the beach, lol!
Well then Ms.Terry, it is time to visit a beach!
It's wonderful. I think it is a kind of mushrooms.
Hello and welcome ! Actually they are related to 'Sea Urchins' and 'Star Fish'. They are very thin and flat....and delicate.
Don't you just love a great beach find! Who doesn't love a sand dollar-- they are a special gift from the sea. I often wonder about their journey also--Vicki
Hey, I really like your comments and appreciate the time you took to do so.
