Tansy has just spent a summer among archaeologists. During the recent stint on Haida Gwaii, Tansy and her companions clambered around on the foreshore looking for evidence of use by ancient peoples! When the crew stopped for lunch, human gum boots came off but Tansy continued looking for interesting things on the beach.
There are beautiful pearly shells of all shapes and sizes washed up on the beaches, including this lovely abalone…
…this moon snail,
and this pretty turban snail shell – with its periostracum missing.
This cockle was still half-buried in the sand…
Tansy sat in a half of a Geoduck shell!
Contemplated bathing in the rainwater-filled mussel tub,
And got snapped at by a scallop.
This was her favourite shell!
