Making Their Own Music

Oh my gosh, you guys, the coolest thing happened today.

Well, we’re trying to get our lake property ready to sell. It’s about 2 hours from our house and we went there today to finish some things.

After working a few hours, we went down to the water to walk around. The lake is pretty low right now, so there’s a sandbar  out of the water where we can walk.

I pulled my shoes and socks off and Little Bit got maybe 10 steps ahead of me. Suddenly, I could hear something, which was really odd because there was no one around.

I stopped to listen and then, I figured it out!

The bushes that are  normally underwater  had their  branches reaching for blue sky and were absolutely covered in shells.

Not only that, but there were shells all over the sand. They were everywhere.

I have never seen anything like it. You want to talk about beautiful? Simply by rattling in the wind, those tiny little shells were making their own music.

      It was sooooooo amazing. Even my husband, who was behind us a ways, was so excited to ask me if I’d heard them. It really was so cool. Can you imagine? Here they’ve been stuck underwater, and now they’re singing! 😊😊

      Made the day’s work even more worthwhile. If we’d have stayed home, we would’ve missed them.

    Love the photos! Be careful going barefooted on those sharp shells!! I see the lake level in the background, it must of been really high to deposit the mussels that far up on the timber! You’ve had such beautiful weather, I bet it was wonderful at the lake!!

    • Jessica February 13, 2017 / 8:22 pm

      You’re right, I was watching my step. Yes, the lake levels fluctuate because of the dam. It’s pretty low right now, but not the lowest I’ve seen it. What’s also fun is, when the end of the sand bar is completely out and we can look for arrowheads. :)

      Our weather has been nice. 50’s this week and 70’s coming up this weekend! How about yours?

      • Debra Farmer February 15, 2017 / 7:45 am

        We are to have temps in the 70’s for the rest of this week. My hollyhocks are coming up. Have a wonderful day!❤️

        • Jessica February 15, 2017 / 10:39 am

          Wow!!! 70’s??? It’s freezing here!
