Our 9th Rock: The Shell from Norman’s

The seagulls often useNorman’s back deck as a place to drop shells to open them and pull out the meat (Breaking Bivalves). Since that story, when Guy had originally shared it with me, was so special, and I’ve had many happy times on Norman’s back porch as a colony resident during three winters and one summer, it seemed only fitting that one of these shells should be present in our rock collection.

I chose a scallop shell on February 14, 2012.
