Is This Your Granny?

02162015_SweetGrandmaI met a sweet, soft-spoken lady in her late 70s/early 80s while walking on the beach at Port Aransas on Mustang Island, Texas, back in February 2015.

This gentle lady was ever-so-slowly collecting shells and we started to chat.

She told me that she was gathering the shells to make a hanging shell display for each her two teenaged grandsons. I could tell she put thought into every individual shell, to make sure it was the best of the best for her grandsons.

I didn’t realize that her reflection was in the photo of this shell at the time, but when I offered her the shell for her project, she accepted.

A second shell I offered her didn’t “make the cut” for her collection. She was very particular about the quality, color and size of shell.

As I left the beach about an hour later, this dedicated granny was still there, so I snapped these three photos from afar.
