Mar del Plata is the most famous beach in Argentina, it is a big town, full of attractions during summer. I visited it at the end of the spring and it was cold a lot.The beaches are very windy and are a little different way we can see in Brazil, they are similar with european beaches, including a big casino, tents to people be inside. There are big barriers of hight buildings like in Brazil and many gardens at side of the beach. despite all its beauty that thing I liked more was a giant collection of shells, around 30 thousand shells, from each side of the world, different shapes, colors, regions. There is an little aquarium too.. We can drink a coffee while we are inside that museun cause it is a café too. That museum is very well build and organized with its big shelves. It is a place where we can see all the power of nature in this branch of life.

Dior couldn't have done better ! Nature is the best ! I really like your picture and the well-chosen frame.
Keep up the good work. Thank for sharing.

Nice and simple Jorge...well done...
Thos are not shells, they are the outer 'shell' of sea urchins. If you take all the spines away, and the innards of a sea urchin, you would be left with what you see in your pic
