Tiny treasures

We spent Labor Day weekend at the lake with Mom and Dave. The highlight for Olivia was “treasure hunting”—scouring the newly-exposed lake bottom for interesting finds. While her sister brought back a cast-iron lid, several railroad stakes and a few polished rocks, Olivia spied something far smaller. She carried this dainty little shell back to shore and added it to a growing collection of sparkly baubles, colorful feathers and tiny treasures.

I love Olivia’s eye for detail and appreciation of beauty. I think it’s truly remarkable for someone her age, and I’d like to think she takes after me in this respect. After all, I do have a penchant for pretty little things myself . . .

    Does she have a special box for her treasures? That must be quite the adventure – how far down is the lake? Beautiful photo!
