Magnificent finds on Brighton beach June 15 2014

It was the most perfect morning on Brighton beach and I strolled slowly along the pebble beach, the sun warm on my skin.

As I picked my way across the stones I spotted a rarity, a beautiful seashell, and put it in my pocket, knowing that a tiny succulent of mine would soon make the shell its home. 

But it was my lucky day and that wasn't all that I found. Sitting on the sunny beach, soaking up some rays, I suddenly saw something even more special. 

This stone with an imprint of a shell has completely blown my mind. I have no comprehension how many years ago the imprint must've happened, and the fact that I sat in that spot on the beach, at that time, on that day, makes me feel like the luckiest girl on the planet.
