Anyway! Almost every year when I get time off from work over Christmas, my family and I spend a couple of days at our beach cottage, which is by a fairly secluded beach on the South Coast. Since I was young I've always collected shells off that beach. We are really lucky to have such beautiful beaches in South Africa, with beautiful shells. It's all about where you look! I remember finding such gems in Jongensfontein, a small coastal town near Stilbaai (+- 4 hours out of Cape Town).
