Turban Shell Yesterday!

Yesterday I found another wavy turban shell at PB. When I got home I immediately put it in 1/3rd strength bleach solution.

Top left, how it looked when I put it in the back of my car, and the next 3 are after 18 hours of a bleach solution.

I will soak it more with a splash of boiling water, a bit less bleach, and let it rest.

I’ve been going to San Diego’s Pacific Beach for forty-something years and never knew such large shells were so close to shore–it’s a sandy beach with mostly small shells–until this year.
