This weekend was another one spent at the beach. In our normal Saturday fashion, we pack up after lunch and head the 10-15 miles down to the beach.
This year, we purchased a South Carolina State Park pass and have been thoroughly enjoying Myrtle Beach State Park. So far, I would say it has the best beaches on the Grand Strand.
This Saturday, however, was a special one as I found a real sand dollar in nearly perfect condition!!!
I have never, ever found anything like this at the beach before….plus I am not always looking.
Well, this Saturday, I wasn’t looking again and viola! I see a round thing floating in the water and I immediately recognized it. I started yelling “oh my gosh, oh my gosh!”
Brandon got worried that I hurt myself until I scooped up the sand dollar. He was shocked and amazed.
The rest of the day, I couldn’t stop looking at it. While it was drying, it did chip just a little bit, but the star part is still completely in tact.
Sand dollars are tough to find as I found out from a few of my friends’ posts on Facebook after I posted this picture.
I will treasure this sand dollar for the rest of my life and I will treasure the wonderful times had at the beach with my husband and Myrtle Beach State Park.
