Beach Stone Collecting Hobby Leads to a Wonderfully Creative Alphabet Book

Posted by Greg on July 19, 2011

This is really fun: Turning a beachcombing collection into an artful book!  I’ll never look at beach stones and rocks the same way! These are particular beach stones are real beach treasures, mostly from the “Treasure Coast” of Florida (roughly from Sebastian to Jupiter).

Beachcomber Leslie McGuirk has turned her beach stone collecting hobby into a work of art.  From letters to fish to toast…

Here’s a clip of the article by Peter Pringle of the TC Palm:  “The book— “If Rocks Could Sing: A Discovered Alphabet” — is a photographic collection of seashore-discovered rocks in the shape of each letter of the alphabet, and of rocks resembling objects that begin with the letter.”

I’m inspired to head to the beach, where I might find lions and tigers and bears… oh my.

WooHooo! One more thing to look for at the seashore: animal shaped beach stones! Who knew?

Have a great day at the beach!
