Seashore Treasure MAG
A small boy was walking along the seashore with
his grandfather one day and he said:
"I want to find a treasure that has washed ashore."
The grandfather smiled under his gray
mustache and pointed toward the sand.
"If you look very close," he said to the boy, "you
will find treasure."
The boy jumped with excitement.
"I'll be rich!" he cried out. He looked and looked
for hours, and then he said,
"I can't find any treasure, grandfather."
The grandfather calmly spoke.
"You will find treasure."
The boy looked for more hours and stopped to
rest. He was sweating profusely.
"I can't find any treasure," he complained.
"You will find treasures," said the grandfather.
The boy hesitantly got up and started looking again.
After several more hours, he got fed up.
"Grandfather," he said. "I'm sorry, but there is no
treasure here. All I found were these useless things."
The boy dumped a pile of things in front of his
grandfather. There were beautiful pastel colored
starfish of yellow, orange, purple and blue.
There were ivory-white sand dollars and shells
of many varieties. Big, small, spiraled, scallop,
periwinkle, mussel, and an empty crab shell. mussel?
"Like I told you," said the grandfather to the boy.
"You will find lots of treasure."
