Thanks for the response! The episodes I have seen of "Dr. Who" starred Tom Baker (he of the long scarf) as the Doctor. He is good!
My method of finding seashells is to walk along the edge of the ocean with my feet in the water, where the incoming and outgoing small waves are washing little rocks and things back and forth. Then if a seashell shows up for a few seconds, I try to quickly grab it before a wave pulls it back into deeper water. I usually find better shells this way than I would find up on the beach, and my method is more sporting too, since the shell has a chance to get away!
I am going to an astronomy open house tonight. I hope the sky is clear!
What kind of gemstones do you collect? Do you find these, or buy them?
