Quintessentially tropical

Shells, Belize An island off the coast of Belize ~ February 2, 2005

I couldn't believe it when I saw these shells beneath the tree. They appeared so emblematic of a tropical island. They looked so perfectly posed - even staged. I don't know who put them there, or whether they were tossed randomly. All I could do was enjoy them and . . . snap the shutter.

Did you listen to the sea?

I'll bet someone put them there to get touristy reactions. Did you notice anyone watching you from afar?

Just beautiful and no, you normally wouldn't see anything like this...without the intervention of a hidden hand.

You certainly have traveled! Thanks for sharing!

Like ciel, my first thought was listening to the sea!

Almost a year later, and I can still *almost* hear the sea and see the hand that turned that shell over in pink and rose... leaving lovely lilac dreams in it's watery wake.
