Beauty and the Mouse

I was going through some older pictures and found this closeup of a seashell fragment that I took while on the beach at Honeymoon Island in Florida.  The first picture was a little bit blurry so you get the second picture.  But to my surprise there is also a sort of natural Hidden Mickey on this shell.  I won't tell you where on the shell, since that is half the fun of Hidden Mickeys, but I can tell you that it is a little thin.  You take a look and tell me yourself.

This is one of the things I love about the beaches on the gulf side, specifically in the Dunedin/Clearwater area.  They are beautiful and clean, and loaded with interesting shells and fragments.  There is never a real issue with the beaches being covered in trash, nor are they usually too terribly crowded, except for Clearwater Beach since it is now pretty commercialized. However, if you take a trip out to one of the many other beaches in the area, you will find them a shining white line between civilization and the emerald green waters of the Gulf of Mexico.


Enjoy this moment of warmth in a otherwise cold month.

About a quarter the way down where the light brown is there are two brown spots. The one on the left.

I ALMOST posted a pic of you standing on the that beach looking down the beach. However, since I didn't have your permission and it was a closer pic I didn't think it suited the purposes of the post. You were this close to 15 minutes of fame. Ok, 5 seconds, but still.
