    Waihi Beach, New Zealand


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     cinders23 went to visit her daughter and son-in-law in New Zealand in July 2011. Even though it was winter in New Zealand, she says the sky was blue and it was not too cold. The shells in the photo had washed up overnight. "I was like a kid in candy shop," she says. This image was featured as the CNN's Travel Photo of the Day for December 20, 2013.

    We went to Waihi Beach on the eastern shore of the North Island of New Zealand to spend a few days. The second day there we went down to the beach and there were thousands of perfect shells covering the beach. They were not there the day before. I have never seen such perfectly formed seashells, let alone that many at one time. It was paradise! And the shells looks fantastic in my Mason jars here back at home :)
