    Found these on the beach in Washington. Love the naturally made holes that were made by snails that bore into them for food.

    Welcome Elva
    So Cool!
    I have a small Clam Shaped stone with three whelk holes in it,
    the number of raspy tongued licks over thousands of years by these creatures to accomplish this astounds me
    Will track it down and post a photo, (hopefully)
    Thanks for showing!
