When I take a walk on the beach, sometimes there are school children participating in Marine Biology lessons at the shore. It’s wonderful to see them so engaged as they learn about nature hands on.

Their luck made me think about students who live a distance from the beach - what about them?

I wrote to an Artist who teaches in California in a dessert setting to offer her samples of what is typically found beachcombing on the East Coast.  I collected items and mailed them to the school for use in Art projects. 

Finding treasures for Art students gave my walks extra special purpose.  

The classes are working on a Project named "Beach Combing".  I can see a lot of energy, joy and discovery from their drawings and sculptures. That's how I feel when I beachcomb.
