  1. * * I like to comb the beaches when I'm out walking. I found these and thought they were odd but interesting. Knowing they weren't shell but some kind of skeletal remains. After doing some research I found out they were legendary. I soaked them in a bleach combination to clean them. They're on display now along with my sand dollars and beach shells. The Crucifix Fish.

  2. That's totally AWESOME!!!! You really can see it so clearly. Not just with some imagination. Incredible!

    I love when one can use things from the nature like this. It makes so perfect decorations at home.

    I love to see what one can found on a beach stroll too, but I've stopped bringing all the stuff home.... *giggles*

  29. that is AMAZING! I love your pictures because sometimes I have to sit there and stare at it for a minute until it sinks in. Funny enough, I though, hmm that looks like a crucifix. Then I kept looking and said, hmm. that looks like a fish!

    Then I scrolled down and saw the title and had myself a chuckle!

  32. Wow Anni! What a cool find! I think I'd be afraid to pick the thing up (I'm such a GIRL). I thought at first it was a squirrel skeleton, as in flying squirrel. I know, I'm a dork.

  41. Anni,

    These are awesome. I would love to come and comb the beach with you. That is such fun. When I've visited the Maritime Provinces on the east coast, I've always loved beach combing. Such interesting things can be found.

    Another interesting and informative post.
    Blessings for a great day.

  50. Rats, my comment got lost in the mail.

    As I was saying: I love this story. And how cool is it that you found one while walking the beach. The only thing I find is rocks/stones, sea glass, broken shells and driftwood...

    ReplyDelete
  51. Intriguing photos today. I appreciated the explanation in the first comment and perhaps could ‘adopt’ this strategy myself to keep MY ‘almost WW posts’ from becoming ‘wordy’ as I all too often do. What a wonderful 'find' and very ‘kewl’ sharing today ;--)
    Hugs and blessings,
