On a calm morning, she basks in the salty breeze while azure waves ebb and flow against her bare feet, bringing with them early memories of coastal bliss. Memories of childhood days spent bythe shore, gathering countless shells resembling butterfly wings, lustrous pearls, once mere grains of sand, and diaphanous algae, the flowers of the sea. Memories of her first impulse to contemplate and cherish marine gems, to safeguard these moments and mementos for a lifetime, cataloging each one, utterly charmed by the secrets of the ocean. Truth be told, she's always known tides harbor treasures. She's always felt at one with the sea.
