Sand Dollars!

The Hunt is on for the Legendary Sand Shell on Morro Bay Strand.

sand dollar hunting

My wife and I love to hunt for sand dollars on the Morro Bay Beaches.  The sandy circular treasures on the beach next to the rock always yields a few spectaular pieces.  Actually, the dogs smell the shells and point.  Kidding, I wish it were that easy.  You really do have to keep a keen eye out for the dollar.

We love the Morro Bay Beach and the hunt for treasure is always an exciting adventure for us and the dogs.  We let the dogs join in the hunt, they love it, and we love the challenge of searching for sandy treasures.

If you have never been hunting for treasures on a beach now is the time to start.  If you are on vacation or a day trip to the Central Coast of California make sure to save time to go treasure hunting. 

The day we took the pictures above it was stinging cold.  January on the Central Coast of California can get mighty cool, so bring a jacket if you plan on spending any time on the beach.

The Legend of the Sand Dollar

There's a lovely little legend
that I would like to tell,
of the birth and death of Jesus,
found in this lowly shell.

If you examine closely,
you'll see that you find here,
four nail holes and a fifth one,
made by a Roman's spear.

On one side the Easter lily,
its center is the star,
that appeared unto the shepherds
and led them from afar.

The Christmas Poinsettia
etched on the other side,
reminds us of His birthday,
our happy Christmastide.

Now break the center open,
and here you will release,
the five white doves awaiting,
to spread Good Will and Peace.

This simple little symbol,
Christ left for you and me,
to help us spread His Gospel,
through all Eternity.
