We got back from Myrtle Beach a couple of weeks ago. On this trip we collected quite a few shells. To make a souvenir of Myrtle Beach, our 8 year old made a stepping stone for the garden with some of the shells. We already had a mold from a kit she had, so we mixed up some concrete and she placed as many shells as she wanted in it. It looks very nice in the garden.

That's a great idea. Maybe this will be a tradition -- make a stone each year with shells gathered from the latest trip. She could engrave the year on the stone. Some of the sidewalks adjacent to newer hotels in MB have embedded shells and they really add a lot of character.

My little Sister and Brother-in-law vacationed with my wife and I in Myrtle Beach in 2004. She made this one for me from shells she collected.

My Sister lives about 3 hours away and I don't get to see her as often as I would like. It makes me smile and brings back memories of our MB vacation together whenever I see it.
