They used to find a lot of seashells in many different varieties. Conchs, cones, olives, and many more would be washed up on the beach, waiting to be found by these two beachcombers.

They traveled there in hopes of finding seashells for Denise to use in jewelry and home decor. The west side of this island was known for having many shells. Denise and Angie found shells on two different beaches; many of which they hadn't seen in Grenada for years.
