Seashell of the Week #1

Today starts my weekly seashell identification quiz. I decided to start with something easy that also happens to be one of my favorites. Now you ask, "Will there be a prize?" The answer is yes! Every three months, whoever gets the right answer first most often will win a mousepad featuring their favorite shell on it! In the case of a tie, there will be runoff quiz. Sound good? Okay, then let's get started! For this first quiz, I only want the common name. If I find out you guys are really good at this I'm going to make it harder! Have fun!

Please note: If you are guessing as "Anonymous" there is no way for me to know who you are, so you will not be eligible for the prize.

Hi Marge, thanks for visiting my new blog! I have to say, the pictures of the mother and chick egrets you posted for Mother's Day were the best! Definitely brought a smile and a laugh my way.

Everyone needs to visit the Space Coast Beach Buzz Blog! There's a link in my Beachy Blogs list on your right.

I love the beach and everything that goes with it! I love the waves lapping at my feet. I love the feel of the sand between my toes. I love the roar of the Pacific and the gentle waves of the Gulf of Mexico in Florida. Let's talk about beaches around the world, bonfires, building sandcastles, swaying palm trees, flamingos, clambakes, sunrises and sunsets. If it's tropical, it fits this blog!
