I was at this coral sand beach last year but never noticed the tiny perfect shells among the myriad grains and fragments. Sarah saw them first. That's what happens when there's nothing better to do than stare at the miniscule just inches from one's face. We took turns finding them, each smaller than the last, but since we're here to respect the fuck out of the ʻāina we knew we couldn't keep them, so I took this picture instead. How nice it is to inhabit a wee island in a vast ocean on a speck of a planet.
