Random Quote from a Book Deemed Good Enough to Bring Home; Vol. 5

Because only one state can be the breastuses of America (even if it takes a children's book to make us remember):

The Knobbed Whelk is the state shell of New Jersey. It is a large, yellow-gray shell with a cream to red opening. It is also known as a conch shell and can be discovered on most bays and beaches. Whelks are harvested for food which is often canned.
Periwinkles, scallops, slipper shells, moon snails, wentletraps, and clam shells can also be found on the beaches of the shore.

G is for Garden State
A New Jersey Alphabet
