Our shell collection.
It all started one day when a good friend dropped by with a box of shells. He said, “I wanted someone to have them, someone who will appreciate them”. The shells are beautiful and in pristine condition….all found on Maui over a span of many years. I told him I would take care of them. Some time later, he was gone…..I think of him every time I open the cabinet…..
Kent’s mom also gave us her shells….ones that were collected by her grandfather. We were told that most were collected at Ma’alaea before the harbor was built. Needless to say, you won’t find these shells around much now days….
And of course, we add the shells that we find.
Some day we will want someone to have our collection, someone who will appreciate them……
