They Sell Seashells down by the Seashore

Susan is spending a week of summer vacation at her Grandmother's tiny cottage on the coast of Maine. Grandma has spent her whole life by the sea and spends every morning walking along the shore with her dog, collecting driftwood and sea glass. Here are a few of the gals' favorite things.

There is nothing quite like the smell of the sea, so they splash on this saltwater perfume every morning.
Grandma's been wearing her classic Keds since 1960, and they never seem to go out of style.

Grandma has a collection of lighthouse paintings, and this is the latest addition.

A cheery nautical tote for Susan's books on knot tying. Grandma is showing her the ropes. (Ha!)

This necklace was a gift from one of Gran's long lost sweethearts.

Gran and Susan take turns wearing this coat each morning on her long walks down the beach.

Every summer the gals sell Seashell Sugar Cookies down by the seashore. They're a big hit with tourists and locals alike.

Love all of these. I can just see the beach in Maine in my mind. So different to my beach here in Florida. But so beautiful.

Love the story as well as the treasury. Thanks for the trip to the beach this morning. : )
