Collecting shells

Late afternoon on the beach, and he was absorbed in collecting shells, his eyes alert for tiny ones, half-buried in the sand. Not just tossing them into the bucket, but examining each, commenting on stripes and colours and the odd one with a mother of pearl inside. Going home in the car he chinked through them like gold, talking away to himself happily.
