Early Sunday morning, as my boys were making a sand castle, I was strolling by the beach looking for shells. Most of them are Puka Shells. Instead of going to the souvenir shop, I had more fun searching for pretty shells. I also took home some sand. It's so nice to see shells of different designs and colors being washed to shore naturally. It's my first time to really appreciate it. Most of the time, I see dead corals, broken shells or even dead fishes.
Canyon Cove is my new favorite beach destination. They say it's pricey, I say, it's just right. The time I spent picking up shells having that big grin of excitement is one of the things worth paying for. We pay for the privacy the resort is giving us (as guests and clients), there's not a sign of any trash anywhere, employees are very courteous and accommodating, the beach is amazing. It's all about relaxation, leisure and fun put together.
And today I assembled my "shelly souvenir" in a candle holder and placed on my computer desk, right beside my monitor where I can see it and will surely remind me of that special weekend.
