Hands Full of the Lakeshore

The lakeshore is made up of much more than grains of sand.

There are the remnants of the rocks 
that are being slowly ground away.

There are many kinds of shells and the sand varies in coarseness along the way.

Next time you walk the beach, look down to discover the geological and biological clues at your feet.
This is the largest fresh water clam shell I've ever seen on the lakeshore.
