Phascination – Drilled Clam Shells

On our last late-season trip to the beach I found quite a few clam shells with perfect holes in the top. I love finding clams like these…if I want to string them in a project the holes are already drilled for me. Mollusks of all kinds drill these holes. You can find an excellent explanation of this here: Why are there holes through some clam shells?

I found other pristine clam shells, perhaps they were the other side of a drilled shell. I find the blue stripes on these smaller sized clams very beautiful.

I can’t seem to go the beach without coming home with bags of shells. God is good! Beachcombing is one of the joys of my life.
