Unfortunately, I can’t hide that I have a Seashell Problem. Friends get worried when they see me walking on the beach. Why keeping the eyes on the ground instead of contemplating waves and horizon as is the custom? “Have you lost something?”
Fishermen watch too. They wonder what profitable business the foreign woman is in. Crab hunting? Our anchorage neighbors would like to ask what we are bringing back to the boat in that mysterious net bag every morning. Lobsters maybe.
